Tonya Dixon-Neely of North Rowan High School in North Carolina was the teacher caught on tape berating students with pro-Obama rhetoric.
She was suspended from school without pay but will be getting her job back next year.
With so many people out of work, it is a disgrace that we keep subpar teachers like this employed. Thank you teacher unions!
The entire conversation can be heard on the Youtube video below.
The superintendent sounded like he shared the same opinions as we did.
“As I have stated to our entire school system staff, I expect all teachers to be professional during class discussion and not to force their personal or political views on students, demean students, or instruct students on what to believe,” Grissom said in the release. “Teachers must create a positive instructional environment conducive to learning within the guidelines of our state curriculum.
“Ms. Dixon-Neely’s failure to meet these standards during the recorded portion of class is the basis for my disciplinary action against her.”
But Grissom said school administrators report the recording does not reflect Dixon-Neely’s usual performance as a teacher. She received two formal classroom observations before the recording in May, both positive.
