wltx.com | Teacher makes controversial comments about race
An example of what’s in America’s classrooms today…
Further motivation for me to finish this degree and get into the classroom and get to work.
God-chaser. NC native, now planted in Jacksonville, FL.
Happily married to a handsome church-planting pastor. I am easily excited by Jesus, education, cupcakes, Moleskine notebooks, and Pepsi. Overwhelmed by God's amazing grace, undeserving of His love and mercy.

LOL, I’m just watching this. I couldn’t help but laughing — feels like a Chappelle’s Show skit.
I sincerely hope, that in high school, the students know that his words and beliefs are totally ridiculous and without merit.

Well #1, I think you need to return to NC to teach. And #2, I thought it was interesting how he spoke of his admiration for John C. Calhoun, who actually has a statue (representing SC) in the U.S. Capitol. I noticed this while in DC this summer, and it’s quite a sad sight to see.

His comments do not surprise me at all. Unfortunately, there are probably more teachers out there like him. As a matter of fact, I was in the MAT program with a few.
On another note, have you already decided where you want to teach? You should come back to NC and visit my school. We’re offering signing bonuses, and we really need teachers who are committed to the cause. If you want to know what its really like, call me:0)
