The hope for America’s success is our young. I believe we’ll be okay!
One Georgia boy named Jason Newberry bring hope to many Americans after refuse to kneel during the performance of the Pledge of Allegiance despite what his teacher and other students did. When Jason’s class began kneeling for the national anthem, he denied to engage in such behavior— instead, he stood tall and placed his hand upon his heart, and proudly recited the words which show tribute to this great nation.
In response, students singled him out and began to bully him, along with one other student who stood tall and recited the pledge of allegiance. “Nobody put their hand over their heart except me and one other little boy and we said the Pledge of Allegiance. Me and him got called KKK, Nazi, and we just kept getting bullied the whole day,” said Jason.
The worse thing is, in fact, his teacher’s reaction, who pushed her liberal values to the students instead to educate them. She proceeded to shame the boys, showed them liberal propaganda of NFL players who disrespected the national anthem and flag, kneeling and continued to teach the class that she will never stand for the flag.
Jason said: “The teacher said that she’ll never stand for the Pledge of Allegiance and that, if she did stand for the Pledge of Allegiance, then she wouldn’t really mean it.”
Jason’s mother, Lisa Newberry was very angry when she found out that her kid was bullied by the students, but moreover was outraged by teacher’s response. Lisa reiterated that it is the educator’s job to teach students the appropriate curricula and not to try to sway them with their political opinions.
“She made her own poll on paper, passed it out to all her students to see what they thought was right or wrong about taking a knee,” Lisa said. “These are our kids. We should be able to instill our values in them — not her.”
The school has refused to offer parents answers about the incident. However, teacher released a letter to upset parents in which she made an apology before defending her actions, alleging that expressing a one-sided opinion to students is “not a one-sided lesson.”
“I apologize for expressing my views to my students. I recognize that while this was not a one-sided lesson, the topic itself and the expression of my views were not appropriate, my intentions were well-meaning,” the teacher wrote.
I’m proud of this young man, for standing up for his country. But it’s so disappointing that our children go through such treatment in the schools and bullied by the other students and from the teacher too.
This is what is wrong in schools today. Teachers should be teaching respect not trying to instill their beliefs. I really don’t understand what these teachers were taught in their education classes but one thing is for sure… School district should not tolerate this behavior from a teacher.
