What is going on in the local government schools?
Another parent has complained about her child being subjected to rants and raves against the president of the United States.
When the 17-year-old girl objected, she was told that if she didn’t like it she could leave the class.
The incident happened Monday at Sandalwood High School, the woman told Eye on Jacksonville.
Her teacher bragged about converting many students to vote for Trump by his classroom political speeches, the woman said.
The girl was in a dual enrollment class on psychology.
The teacher told the student that he could say anything he wanted in the classroom and that she was free to leave if she did not like what he said.
Naturally, the child’s mother called the school. She said a school official told her Tuesday the teacher was not free to indoctrinate students in political matters and that an email would be sent to the teacher explaining that to him.
She identified the teacher as Charles Crygier.
The teacher gave his opinion of what the Republican Party stands for, and listed things he thought Donald Trump had done wrong, according to the student.
He claimed that previous speeches had caused all the students in another class to change their minds about who they supported politically. Students ages 16 to 18 attend the classes.
“He shouldn’t be expressing his opinions in class,” the mother told Eye.
She said she called the school system and said she wanted to file a complaint about a teacher, but she was redirected to a phone with a busy signal.
Just recently, Eye reported about a grand-mother overhearing a third-grade child’s online lesson that contained a recorded presentation about the presidential election. The presentation was little more than a partisan attack on the president.
Two incidents don’t necessarily make a trend. But with teacher unions being the largest donors to the Democrat Party and the majority of the School Board liberals, it certainly raises questions.
Eye has emailed the teacher, an assistant principal at Sandalwood and the school administration seeking answers. The only response to date was from the administration, which said they would look into the matter.
Friday, the woman’s daughter and five other students in the psychology class were pulled out of class and asked to provide written statements about what happened.
