Of Course: Idiot Teacher Who Said It’s Criminal to Criticize Dear Leader Gets to Keep Her Job

It’s for the children. Have to keep them as stupid and ignorant as possible.

The North Rowan High School teacher who told students it’s criminal to speak ill of the president will keep her job with the Rowan-Salisbury School System.

Although Tanya Dixon-Neely has been suspended without pay, she will return next school year, when she will be required to start a monitored growth plan, Superintendent Dr. Judy Grissom said in a press release.

The district received national attention when a nearly 10-minute video of Dixon-Neely and senior Hunter Rogers engaging in a heated political debate went viral. In the video, the Dixon-Neely can be heard telling Rogers that he could be criminally charged for speaking ill of President Obama and that people had been charged for insulting former President George W. Bush.

“As I have stated to our entire school system staff, I expect all teachers to be professional during class discussion and not to force their personal or political views on students, demean students, or instruct students on what to believe,” Grissom said in the release. “Teachers must create a positive instructional environment conducive to learning within the guidelines of our state curriculum.

“Ms. Dixon-Neely’s failure to meet these standards during the recorded portion of class is the basis for my disciplinary action against her.”

But Grissom said school administrators report the recording does not reflect Dixon-Neely’s usual performance as a teacher. She received two formal classroom observations before the recording in May, both positive.

She wound up with a 10-day suspension. If the kid who complained called Obama a Stuttering Clusterf*ck of a Miserable Failure he’d probably have been expelled.

Nice country we used to have.

Wouldn’t you be comforted knowing your child was being “educated” by this nutjob?

    That’s complete BS for a variety of reasons, but the biggest problem with this woman’s behavior isn’t even addressed by Grissom.

    “What do you mean?” you ask.

    I mean that this woman was trying to teach these children FALSE INFORMATION. Not just that, but false information that she clearly believes to be true. This woman is not smart enough or versed enough in the SUBJECT SHE IS SUPPOSED TO TEACH to be able to convey information to the students for whom she is responsible. She shouldn’t just be fired for being a progressive leftist tool with the emotional control of a three year old. She should be fired for being an incompetent, uneducated, probably illiterate idiot.
