North Carolina Teacher Tells Elementary School Student Her “Hero” Can’t Be Jesus
Ask me again why my kids are homeschooled:
A parent is speaking out after she said her daughter’s teacher rejected a rough draft of her paper. The subject, her hero, Jesus.
Heather Watts said her daughter attends second grade at Cerro Gordo Elementary School in Columbus County. Watts said the teacher asked her 8-year-old daughter Ryleigh, “can’t you write about something different?”
“I think she should have freedom to write about what she wants to write about,” the disgruntled mother said. “If she wants to write about Jesus, she should write about Jesus.”
Watts said this question is threatening her daughter’s First Amendment rights of freedom of speech and freedom of religion.
“Can’t you write something different?”
Can’t you do something besides teach? and when I say “teach,” I mean, “indoctrinate.”
This teacher isn’t about educating kids. Tell me I’m wrong.
