Yes that is an authenticated picture of the teacher being silly on Facebook for “school pictures”…
Ok folks, I try to avoid hassling our Teachers. Lord knows they have a hard enough job without a blogger making that job even more difficult. In this case, it is unavoidable!
So, there you go, you know I have a soft spot for teachers. This 4th-grade teacher in Michigan just aggravated me well beyond what is reasonable. Why on God’s green earth would a teacher send a letter like this to parents?
The letter is below. It was first released by Steve Gruber a Radio Show host from that local community.
Here is a letter sent to parents of 4th Graders in Williamston, Michigan by their teacher. Please read and tell me what…
In the letter released by Mr. Gruber the teacher, Brett Meteyer says:
I have decided to show the inauguration of Donald Trump this Friday, but we will not view Mr. Trump’s inauguration speech. Because every peaceful transition of power is a historic moment, I put in a request to the Trump team to preview the speech, but I have not heard back from them.
I’m sorry! Who are you to ask for a preview of the speech? Every News organization in the country would love to get their hands on that speech. Some might, but many won’t. The arrogance of this letter cuts me to the core!
Earlier in the letter to parents, he says:
I am concerned about my students and your children being exposed to language and behavior that is not in concert with the most conservative social and family values,
Ok, Mr. 4th-Grade-Teacher since when are you the purveyor of what is or is not “conservative social and family values”? Donald Trump for better or for worst is our next President, like it or NOT. You sound like a disgruntled Ted Cruz supporter who read way too much FAKE NEWS! This is absurd!
Furthermore, and Finally! WHO CARES IF YOU DON’T SHOW THE SPEECH! There is this little thing called YouTube! If they want to watch it, they can watch it there. Look around, how many of those 4th-graders have Smartphones, but get that free or reduced lunch?
In my opinion, this was a STUNT intended to call Donald Trump something he is not. Do you honestly think he is going to say something that a 4th-Grader shouldn’t hear while he knows full well they will be watching!
One last thing! How many of those children hear much worse at home? Get over yourself you are a 4th-grade teacher, so INSTRUCT and TEACH! Keep your political stunts to yourself! Welcome to the REAL INTERNET!
God Bless! God Bless America!
