In this joyous and festive holiday season it’s nice to see that Liberals and Mindless Bureaucrats are able to enjoy the season for what it is…
A Georgia high school student slated to receive a full athletic scholarship to college will not graduate on time after being suspended for one year last week as punishment for hugging a teacher in Nov.
17-year-old Sam McNair of Duluth High School was found guilty of violating the school’s rules regarding sexual harassment for a hug that was captured on video by a surveillance camera.
The teacher alleges McNair’s lips and cheeks touched the back of her neck, but the student has adamantly denied such allegations.
“I did not,” McNair told KCTV.
“Something so innocent can be perceived as something totally opposite,” he added.
Well, when you create an atmosphere for the teacher that if they just look at the kid the wrong way they’ll be sued for all kinds of things (I was warned about this 20 years ago when I was in The College of Education at Arizona State).
Don’t be alone with a kid EVER, because then you could be sued or fired or both for sexual harrassment. Etc.
So now they’ve extended then paranoia to students.
Geez, aren’t “zero tolerance” bureaucrats, liberals, and lawyers just the best Christmas Gift you get this fine Holiday Season (shhh..Don’t say “Christmas” it’s politically incorrect and discriminatory!).
According to the discipline report, the teacher had previously warned McNair hugs were inappropriate, KCTV reported. However, the 17-year-old disputes such claims and his mother doesn’t understand why she was never informed her son’s hugging was problematic.
“He’s a senior. He plays football and was getting ready for lacrosse and you’re stripping him of even getting a full scholarship for athletics for college,” April McNair told KCTV.
Well, he’s obviously a rampant sexual predator and he had to be disciplined.
And he doesn’t have Affluenza (see yesterday’s blog) so he must be stopped!
Hugs are just a gateway drug bigger and and more offensive sexual crimes, after all!!
Sharese Shields Ages, an education attorney not associated with the case, said school districts have a responsibility to crack down on sexual harassment but also thoroughly educate students about what constitutes sexual harassment.
“The school district should do a very good job communicating to both parents and students what appropriate contact is between students and teachers and to the extent that they have not done that it was an extreme punishment for the student,” said Shields Ages.
Sloan Roach, a spokesperson for Gwinnett County Public Schools, would not comment on McNair’s case but said in a statement that “hearing officers consider witness testimony, a review of the known facts, and a student’s past disciplinary history…when determining consequences.”
Could you get a more coldly bureaucratic response?
Sam McNair does have a discipline record and previous suspensions but not for sexual harassment and he does not believe he should be punished for showing affection.
“You know what someone’s going through. A hug might help,” said Sam McNair.(Channel 5 Atlanta)
Sorry, touching another human being is VERBOTEN!
A 6-year-old boy has been suspended from a Colorado school for kissing a girl on the cheek.
School officials in Canon City are accusing Hunter Yelton of sexual harassment and they want it on his school record.
A 6 Year old Sexual Predator! Imagine that…
A School District RE-1 official says the repeat offenses meet the school policy definition of sexual harassment and they hope the tough standards will force the boy to change his behavior.
Imagine was a sexual fiend this kid will be when he’s 18. He’ll be killing Prostitutes and spreading disease left and right so we have to stop this serial killer before it starts! 🙂
The school district, for its part, disagrees with Yelton’s mother’s opinion about the boy’s behavior and says kissing a girl at school is unacceptable, the station reported.
Sandy Wurtele, a child psychologist, was critical about the district’s decision to punish the boy over the kiss.
“I don’t think a 6-year-old would understand what harassment is,” Wurtele told KRDO. “That has some longer-term implications.”
And these are the same kind of bureaucrats you want for Health Care?? 🙂
