Re: “Racist Image Used in Vail District High School, Superintendent Downplays the Incident

Imagine being the only student of your race in a class full of any every other race...imagine your race was mocked physically by the person in authority. Imagine everyone in the class laughing except you...then imagine how you'd feel.

This teacher flat out failed. I wonder if she would have showed that photo to African-American adults. If she only was mocking the President, that'd be one thing...still inappropriate because politics and race should stay out of the classroom unless that is the subject of the class. But photo shopping big lips and the rest makes it racist and shows a clear bias.

Teachers do not just impart knowledge; they should also teach responsible citizenship. There is no context that excuses this. Additionally, the superintendent who claims he wants "10 more just like her" has demonstrated failed leadership at a much wider level.

This young lady should not be "your" teacher or "my" teacher or "our" teacher. ..she should be everyone's teacher. If she is as good as everyone says, someone needs to have sone straight talk with her. I did and said things in my 30s that I should not have did and said. I learned...and I stopped. Perhaps she will learn...there is less hope for the superintendent who has proven himself to be a poor leader...if the term leader can even be applied.
