Obama’s policy punishes ‘racist’ teachers who discipline criminal students

Across the country, teachers are beginning to feel increasingly insecure as students are given free rein to say whatever and behave however they choose without fear of retribution.

In this upside down culture we live in, it is the teachers who fear reprisal for their students’ bad behavior from not only the students themselves, but administration that leads all the way up to the Oval Office.

Tiffany Gabbay of Truth Revolt reported the full scoop:

It’s been clear for quite some time that the current administration is more interested in dividing the nation and emboldening the subversive elements within it than it is in setting a responsible example by supporting the people and institutions most in need.

A grim example is how Obama education officials are now pressuring teachers to capitulate to the Black Lives Matter movement. Teachers are expected to silently suffer physical abuse and turn a blind eye to criminal activity from violent students or else face grave repercussions. Yes, in today’s day and age, teachers are being dismissed from their posts and accused of “racism” if they even so much as a complain about student-criminals. The New York Post provides details in this new, disturbing report:

Under pressure from Obama educrats, public school districts are no longer suspending even violent students; but now, under pressure from Black Lives Matter, they are suspending teachers who complain about not suspending bad kids.

In St. Paul, Minn., a high school teacher was put on administrative leave last month after Black Lives Matter threatened to shut down the school because the teacher complained about lenient discipline policies that have led to a string of assaults on fellow teachers.

Last month, two students at Como Park Senior High School punched and body slammed a business teacher unconscious, opening a head wound that required staples. And earlier in the year, another student choked a science teacher into a partial coma that left him hospitalized for several days.

In both cases, the teachers were white and the students black.

According to the Post, the Education Department has even threatened school districts with lawsuits and funding cuts if it finds racial “disparities” in the number of black students suspended or expelled for bad behavior. According to the administration, it is “racist” to discipline black students and teachers who do so are creating a “school-to-prison pipeline.”

Yes, according to the administration, when students deal drugs in the hallway or assault teachers with weapons, it’s the teachers’ fault. Understandably, St. Paul high school teacher, Theo Olson, complained on Facebook about new district policies and paid the price:

“Anyone care to explain to me the school-to-prison pipeline my colleagues and I have somehow created, or perpetuated, or not done enough to interrupt?” Olson wrote. “Because if you can’t prove it, the campaigns you’ve waged to deconstruct adult authority in my building by enabling student misconduct, you seriously owe us real teachers an apology.”

Complained Olson: “Since we now have no backup, no functional location to send kids who won’t quit gaming, setting up fights, selling drugs, whoring trains, or cyber bullying, we’re screwed, just designing our own classroom rules.”

For these mild opinions, Black Lives Matter called Olson “a white supremacist” even though he had once marched with the group. Two days after Black Lives Matter met with the St. Paul school superintendent — and agreed to call off its protest — the 10-year veteran teacher was put on leave.


Sadly, it doesn’t end with Olson.

In February, a Colorado teacher sued Thompson School District for firing her when she called the police to report death threats from a 13-year-old student. Carrie Giesler claims superiors warned her against documenting attacks by the boy, who allegedly punched her in the ribs and broke her thumb. “I’m going to kill you, bitch,” she said he told her one day. The district discouraged punishments, she says, after adopting “restorative practices” whose goals, according to its website, are to “reduce suspensions and expulsions (and) reduce (the) number of discipline referrals.”

Last month, a 16-year-old high school student in Syracuse slugged not one but two teachers in the mouth after they asked him to put away his phone, something Obama educrats say is a big no-no. The Education Department states that even if the only reason a school happens to punish more black students for unauthorized “use of electronic devices” is because blacks actually “are engaging in the use of electronic devices at a higher rate than students of other races,” it can still be liable for discrimination under so-called “disparate impact” theory.

A recent survey of 830 Syracuse teachers by the New York State United Teachers union found that more than a third say they’ve been assaulted at least once in the classroom, with more than 70% of victims saying they’ve suffered cuts and bruises or broken bones. Overall, two-thirds of teachers say they fear for their safety, and 43% complain their schools are no longer committed to protecting them. As a result, nearly half say they’re “seriously considering” quitting.

The truth is, this president has done more than any other to divide this nation, emboldening criminals and special interests, punishing those sworn to educate, protect and serve, and pitting fellow Americans against one another.

Oddly, teachers unions have organized strikes for far less important reasons before, why not now when it is truly necessary?
