Full story: Berkshire Eagle

A teacher at a failing school where he and all his colleagues are being fired hung an effigy of President Barack Obama in his classroom, apparently in reaction to Obama's support of extreme measures to ensure accountability in schools.

racism is alive and well in Rhode Island. This teacher should be terminated immediately.

What does race have to do with it? Don't be rediculous, I am so sick of people crying racism for everything pertaining to obama. No the whole country DOES NOT LOVE obama and it has nothing to do with the color of his skin and EVERYTHING to do with his policies !!!!

Teachers Union Pres,Jane Sessums said unnamed A-HO teacher who hung the effigy of Pres.Obama as a "Lesson Plan" sure was right. It taught me that that this kind of "instructor" should be fired and never rehired to be around our students.
Poor judgement?
Rhode Island folks should jump on this action.

Barack Obama is President of the United States whether you're for his policies or against them. We had to look at a picture of Richard Milhaus Nixon every day in our classroom, which made most of us want to vomit, but he was still President of the United States and our teachers had the decency to role model respect, whether they liked him or not. Certainly no lynchings of his effigy in our classrooms...

This teacher in RI does not deserve to teach. Period.

Well we're movin on up,
To the east side.
To a deluxe apartment in the sky.
Movin on up,
To the east side.
We finally got a piece of the pie.

Fish don't fry in the kitchen;
Beans don't burn on the grill.
Took a whole lotta tryin',
Just to get up that hill.
Now we're up in the big leagues,
Gettin' our turn at bat.
As long as we live, it's you and me baby,
There ain't nothin wrong with that.

Well we're movin on up,
To the east side.
To a deluxe apartment in the sky.
Movin on up,
To the east side.
We finally got a piece of the pie.

Was it one of those dolls that you pull the string and it lies to you? Or the one that recites the names of all 57 states? That is one stupid teacher. And the union let that person teach? Amazing. How many more numb-sculls are out their exposing themselves to our children? No wonder kids are so dumb today. They have to finish high school to know what I had learned by 8th grade. It's remarkable. Now let me turn on the spelling checker so some teacher doesn't tear me a new one. I know you are checking.

Lynching the 1st black president? How could that possibly be racist?

It's called hate crime, not freedom of speech. You're free to be ignorant, but please don't spread your seed. Thanks.

I dunno, is "it" numb-sculls, not skulls? Or do you mean their oars are insensitive? I'm guessing you actually meant the "their/they're/there " thing... spell check wont help you their :) You probably should have kept going after getting your high school education by 8th grade.

Are we sure it wasn't sex ed?

It could have merely been a demonstration of autoerotic asphyxiation.

And how many people who disagreed with past Presidents have put up effigies? Effigies are not a sign of protest, but more a sign of hate.

Of course it is racist, the teacher was Black and the obama doll was white. Real blacks know for certain obama is not one of them.
