And Democrats believe the public school system is fine?
A teacher’s representative was captured on an undercover video bragging that he had struck students more than once during his teaching career.
“I can see grabbing a kid, I can see throwing a kid up against a locker. Not that I’ve ever done that,” former San Francisco Bay area math, science and technology teacher Antonio Mankini said before correcting himself. “Okay once, maybe twice.”
The video was captured by Project Veritas, a conservative political activist group spearheaded by James O’Keefe.
Mankini took a leave from his James Lick Middle School teaching post in order to serve as Staff Organizer and Treasurer of United Educators, San Francisco — the union that represents all of San Francisco’s educators.
After his comments were disclosed, he now finds himself the target of an investigation.
“I can only speak to the comments on the video,” teachers’ union member Matthew Hardy told local station KPIX when asked how someone like Mancini can rise to the union’s upper echelon. “When we do our investigation, if we determine it’s accurate we will take action as necessary.”
Mancini eventually got more descriptive in his methods.
“I clotheslined a kid in a class one time, you know and of course I was pretending, I was pointing at the kids and the kids saw… the kid went down.”
He also told the undercover journalist who identified himself to Mankini as a fellow teacher that “elbows are awesome weapons, too.” He explains the threats that he made to kids when he was in the classroom.
“I mean teachers have smacked kids before,” Mankini said. “And sometimes they’re still working.”
Immediately after Project Veritas published the video Tuesday, the union placed Mankini on administrative leave pending its own investigation.
“We are going to get to the bottom of it. We are deeply committed to students’ safety. And we will act as swiftly as we can once we have the full information,” said Hardy.
Recently a 14-year-old female student was dragged into Maryland high school bathroom and brutally raped by two male students, aged 17 and 18. At least one of the alleged rapists was an illegal immigrant.
Attorney Joseph Malouf told Univision’s Pablo Gato that President Donald Trump’s immigration policy would have likely prevented the teen’s entry into the United States. But the Obama administration let him pass.
In a mind-blowing move, Maryland Democrats voted to enact “sanctuary state” status, despite the horrendous rape of one of its young citizens.
Trump appointed Betsy DeVos to serve as his secretary of education, with the goal of making vouchers available so that students can have a choice in their education.
“It’s time to make education great again in this country,” she promised at a pre-inaugural really.
