Teacher receives death threats after giving children a critical-thinking assignment on essay titled 'Trump Against American Values'

A teacher received death threats after giving children an assignment titled 'Trump Against American Values'.
Students were reportedly given an essay criticizing Donald Trump and asked to review what the author was saying about the president.
The purpose of the critical-thinking exercise was for the seventh-grade pupils to evaluate what information could be inferred by the text.
But the Texas-based teacher, who has not been identified, received threatening calls, including death threats, according to the Houston Chronicle
One of the ten essays written by students was titled Trump Against American Values and said the president's policies 'have gone against what Americans value most, like freedom of opportunity'.
The writer began by stating: 'Throughout Donald Trumps time in the American spotlight we have come to see his true colors.'
The short piece then added, 'we have witnessed insensitive remarks toward other racial and cultural groups'.
Students were then asked to fill in a multiple choice response, the first asking, 'which of the following conclusions would the author most likely agree with?' 
One pupil answered, 'Donald Trump should not be president'.
The second question asked the 12 to 13 years olds to finished the statement, 'the reader can infer that...' 
One youngster replied, 'Mexican Americans are the major group upset with President Trump'. 
After Republican state Rep. Briscoe Cain posted a picture of the assignment on Facebook, the Goose Creek Consolidated Independent School District reportedly Breceived several calls, including death threats.
The Congressman said the teacher had 'lost the privilege of being in a classroom' in a Facebook post about the incident.
He wrote on Tuesday: 'They [the teacher] have lost the privilege of being in a classroom with Texas children, and forfeit the title of teacher. No teacher should attempt to indoctrinate a child to their ideology, no matter who is in the White House.
'This individual has violated the sacred trust that every parent has with the State of Texas when they send their child into a public school.
'This type of non-factual rhetoric has no place in our schools regardless of who the president is. 
'My children have experienced great teachers in the classroom, but I have also had to put up with those who see their roles as indoctrinators, not educators.'
The school district said the teacher made an 'error in judgement', in a statement to the Houston Chronicle. 
It read: 'We received many calls at the district. Many of those calls were deeply disturbing and threatening in nature. 
'While we all agree that the particular passage should not have been used, the teacher made a simple error in judgement. Like all of us, teachers are human and make mistakes from time to time.'
The original essay came from a website called Youth Voices that allows students to publish their own posts.

  5. So, an insanely poor example of essay construction that spews an opinion with no little to no facts to back it up is being used as a "teaching" aid.
    This "educator" is a moron.

  6. And the crap on PBS & Saturday morning TV is NOT?
    The Saturday morning children's shows are a direct application of communist indoctrination. I really am not exaggerating how overt the indoctrination is. The parents who are letting the TV entertain their children are allowing the kike wolf directly into their home to sow they poisonous agenda. If you wonder where the social justice warrior snowflakes are coming from wonder no more; they are being turned out from under age 5 onward right through their public indoctrinated education through high school.
    Quit drinking the Kool Aid You,,your children, are being programmed to be docile SERVANTS.
    ----- Do not "question authority" ..... be AFRAID to "offend" anybody at all......grovel & bow. You are ordered to not be judgemental .... but They are judgemental as all get out about you and everything you do or think.
    Paying it forward,Giving back, spend your vacation "helping others" spend 9/11 GIVING .......
    All pushed by RICH people & politicians who sacrifice NOTHING. The Rich write off their time, the politicians are getting you to fix THEIR problems and take pressure off them.
    parting thought .... how have Americans been seduced into training their own children to be SERVANTS. "pay it forward/back" work for others on your vacation, give this, donate that, yield YOUR culture and beliefs to any failed trash that comes along becuse for some unexplained reason You are "inferior" .............. "
    It only stands to reason that where there's sacrifice, there's someone collecting the sacrificial offerings. Where there's service, there is someone being served. The man who speaks to you of sacrifice is speaking of slaves and masters, and intends to be the master." Ayn Rand

  7. 'Christian culture', do you mean it's OK to use brainwashing techniques on children?
    So telling a child 'you will burn in hell for eternity, if you don't accept my version of reality' is just as acceptable as 'control climate change or we all die in twelve years'. Both of which are examples of ultimate consequence.
    How about, making promises to be fulfilled in the future, by someone else other than the presenter. 'God has prepared a place for you in the clouds, where you can live for eternity. Just put this in your mouth'.
    Wow, that's pretty perverse, and against defenseless children, no less. Then again, you're more likely to know the 'benefits' of an inbreeding cult of genetic degens.

  8. Matrimony has lead us to the current socialist matriarch. Most BA teaching graduates walk the stage with a 3.8+GPA. Compulsory education comprises over 17% of the economy. Once sex was criminalized, beyond murder, women took over the system by shear numbers. Then there are the judiciary arts degree holders (BAR) who subsidize the insurance/banking industry and make a mint on divorce. And while they appear to be private, most 'journalist' lean socialist, while they exaggerate and complain, as writers do.
    The entire government is one big arts degree subsidy.
    And what is art, but personal perception. Eventually, perception will become nine tenths the 'law'.
