Girl sues school over failing grade in spanish


#21

<br>The fact that people put so much stock in pledges in the first place is the first thing that is wrong.  <br><br>But then again this is Amerikkka<br><br>The second thing that is wrong is if your kid failed a test, your first thought shouldn’t be to call a reporter, it should be to make sure your sorry ass kid passed.  I wouldn’t want someone asshole like that in my class room if they were potential trying to end my career because they think they are better than the people that live all of 20 miles away.   Fucking coconuts make me sick man.<br>

Granted, I dont think pledges mean a thing, but if someone else does they shoudlnt be forced to recite them against their will, and as a teacher you need to have some awareness to sensitive issues with your students. Thats not the issue here anymore though, she got a different assignment to make up for it, which was the right thing to do, and it shouldve ended there, but whether she was treated unfairly, which it sounds like from not being allowed to attend the class anymore, or she just failed it on her own ‘merits’ and is just looking for an excuse is where the real issue lies at this point, or where it should lie anyways.<br><br>Edit: Agreed again, but from the facts so far whether her parents checked she deserved to pass or not is not something we can really know, but although I might’ve missed it I didnt see anywhere on the op that the first thing her parents did was call a reporter, plus if her mother really is mexican I dont see how she couldve failed something as simple as that, then again, when I was teacher “how could they fail something so easy” was a question I asked myself one too many times. >_><br>

Well, how would the religious people here like it if they were forced to undergo a christening or the equivalent of a christening of another religion?<br><br>What the fuck does learning the history of a country which isn’t even the origin of the language you are learning got to do with learning that language?<br><br>And why the fuck should someone be forced to sit out of a class (which will obviously impact their chances of passing) because they simply told someone about something that happened at their school?<br><br>Seriously giving someone a history assignment they will be graded on for a language class and then excluding them from classes over simply not making a pledge they don’t wish to make reeks of bullshit, she was basicaly set up to fail at that point.<br>


#26

She didn’t have a problem with speaking Spanish. She had a problem with pledging loyalty to Mexico. There’s nothing wrong with that honestly.

Throughout my four years of Spanish in high school, not once have I been given a similar assignment. My teachers were from various Spanish-speaking countries which may explain that, but nonetheless that is a pointless assignment.

Eh, try telling that one to North Korean defectors and see if they don’t look at you like you just fell off the enriched uranium truck.

What really strikes me is that (of course) the teacher was a Texan too. Like, what kind of gay faggot queer* are we dealing with? Take it to Colorado, pansy**.

*I didn’t read the article. If it was a female teacher, kindly amend that to "lady-gay faggot queer.

En viente anos nada va a camnbiar. Los mismos en poder sigueran en poder. auncen seamos la malloeria, vamos a ser pobre, con una minoria hispana con dinero pero se van a prostituir a los poderosos por una illusion.

I just feel bad for those other traitors who said the pledge. It is indeed treason, and while they should rightly be put to death, I can’t help but think their lives would have been different if they weren’t brainwashed by the public schools and their gay, socialist agenda. If they were educated in charter schools, which that 20/20 hour-long infomercial tells me are wonderful, this never would have happened.<br>

They forced us to eat jumping beans.  I hiccuped uncontrollably, shat a rainbow out of my nose, and three seconds later, my head exploded.<br><br>-Starhammer-<br>

I’m confused. They didn’t force her to do it. They gave her an alternative assignment. What’s the issue? <div><br></div><div>Stupid cash grab trying to capitalize on border tensions and xenophobia, unless there’s more to this than I read in the OP.</div><div><br></div><div>The only part that I don’t understand is why did they kept her out of class afterwards?

People find pledges important so it is possible the chick is really patriotic, but blaming the school for failing a replacement assignment is fucking stupid


#40

So yeah, just because you can opt out of the American pledge doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be able to do an assignment that is a grade on your oral proficiency in a language.  The whole fact of the matter is that people don’t recite the American pledge strictly for religious reasons, and no that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be able to use money because it has the word god on it dumb asses.  Anyway, it’s not like there is some offensive wording in the  Mexican pledge itself, unless you count the absence of any religious references.   <br>
