Diantha Harris: It’s a senseless war! [Stares at Kathy.] And by the way, Kathy, the person that you’re picking for president said [Harris shakes her head] that our troops could stay in Iraq for another hundred years if they need to! [Kathy bites her lip, looks ashamed. Other kids stare at Kathy, laugh, smirk.] So that means that your daddy could stay in the military for another hundred years!

[Kathy is on verge of tears.]

[In an interview later:]

Diantha Harris: Now I can support whomever I want to support, as long as I don’t browbeat another person for the candidate that they supported. Like I have some students that support John McCain, and when they told me that, I said ah … “that’s good’ and I just moved on. So, I think that everybody is entitled to their own personal opinion.

there is another thread on this. So I'll move the info to this one as well ...

PSYCHOLOGY 101 - ABUSE OF POWER OVER CHILDREN!


Got this info from another site -

The teacher is s in Cumberland County… Fayetteville.
Not Asheville.

Her Board:
http://www.communications.ccs.k12.nc.us/Board/BOE.htm

Her School:
http://www.mmes.ccs.k12.nc.us/faculty_and_staff.htm

Apparently you can email her directly from the school’s website.

You can use your 1st amendment rights as an American to let this woman know what you think of her educational techniques!

Email Diantha: http://www.mmes.ccs.k12.nc.us/email/diathaharris.htm


I'll be emailing ALL THREE!!

Keep the emails going!! Hopefully this woman won't just get a 'talking to'

Here's the latest - a statement from the super ..

CCS Headline News - Superintendent’s Response to YouTube

I was shocked when I saw the clip of an interaction between a Cumberland County Schools teacher and her students as posted on YouTube. While neutral discussion of the political process is appropriate, at no time, particularly with elementary students, should a teacher infuse his/her political views into the discussion. Most disconcerting was the military slant that made its way into this discussion. We are a military community, serving over 15,000 military students and their families. We value the sacrifices, not only of the military parents but also those of their families.

We believe that military children are our children, military spouses are many of our employees, and military service men and women are our heroes. We proudly serve our military children and have received national awards for our support of military families.

I was particularly disturbed to see the uncomfortable position in which our children were placed due to the inappropriate actions of one of our teachers. Please be assured that the actions exhibited in this video are not consistent with the vision of the CCS. Moreover, the actions of one teacher do not represent the 7000 employees in our organization.

Once the video was brought to my attention, I immediately launched an investigation. Personnel laws prevent me from releasing information regarding individual employees and personnel action taken. I can assure you that upon completion of the investigation, I will take appropriate action.

Dr. William Harrison
CCS’ Superintendent

I sent a letter to the BOE and the Chairman. I could not get the email addresses to go through. This is the kind of crap liberals pull and try to treat as "no big deal" until a Conservative tries it. :mad:

Update: The kids parents seem to think the teacher didn't do anything wrong. I guess they're to indoctrinated by our public school system to care. Sheesh!:(
