Sadly, the school did not burn to the ground, although one teacher did try his damndest by igniting two American flags in the classroom.
Dan Holden, a seventh-grade social studies teacher at Stuart Middle School, burned the flags Friday as part of a lesson on freedom of speech, Jefferson County schools spokeswoman Lauren Roberts said.
The students were asked to write an opinion paper on the flag burning, Roberts said. The burning did not appear to be politically motivated, she said.
Wha? It wasn't politically motivated. I see. Was he cold or something? Perhaps an early frost decended upon this public school in Louisvile Kentucky in August and he was just trying to keep the churlen warm.
Louisville Kentucky. You'd think that down in the South there would be an outrage over this kind of blatantly Anti-American, adolescent posturing that passes as teaching but the only concerns seemed to be for the safety of the kids.
Roberts said at least one parent complained to the district.
"Certainly we're concerned about the safety aspect," Roberts said, along with "the judgment of using that type of demonstration in a class."
I fully expected to hear of bands of angry fathers marching down to the school to kick the snot out of this little puke and send him packing on the next thing smokin'. But, once you throw your kids in the public schools I guess this kind of thing just comes with the territory...
