16-year-old sophomore student, Samantha Pawlucy has not returned to school since last Friday when she was humiliated in front of her entire class by her geometry teacher for wearing a Mitt Romney t-shirt. Her parents claim that what she endured that day was bullying at its worst and should not be taken lightly.
Samantha showed up to school in Philadelphia and went about her day like always until she entered her geometry class. It was there that she says her teacher told her to get out of classroom because of the t-shirt she was wearing. After refusing to leave, her teacher pulled Samantha into the hallway and attempted to scribble on the shirt.
Amazingly, the teacher encouraged other students to make fun of her and even compared Samantha to the Ku Klux Klan.
After class, Samantha admitted to being extremely embarrassed and fearful that other students would continue to make fun of her. It is for this reason that she and her parents want further action to be taken by the school district and for the teacher to be fired for her actions.
During a meeting with the school officials about the incident, the teacher claimed that her actions were all a joke and that she frequently jokes with her students.
The Philadelphia school district is currently conducting an investigation on the entire incident to determine whether or not further action against the teacher needs to be taken.
What do you think of this teacher’s actions?
