My 12 year old son came home to tell me that there was a mock election held today in middle school. I for one do not think that this was a smart thing to do!!! Looks like most of the staff and some students are for Obama, on the other hand my family is republican and are voting for MCCAIN. Now my child is told he is a racist!!! He is not nor is our family we just are conservative republicns!! I never knew that a school had the power to do this!! Knowing that this election is not like any other,which is something to be proud of!! But now the DEXTER MIDDLE SCHOOL has envoked nothing but hate in it!!! Some went so far to say we need to bring the KKK back or that maybe I guess we were the KKK!! Is a school allowed to do this that is my question!!?

This is just something fun that the school does to get the kids involved in todays government. They have done this for several years. It's not anything real big, so really it's not that big of a deal. SO STOP BEING SO DRAMATIC!!!!!

SEE PEOPLE LIKE U IS THE VERY REASON STAFF SHOULD NEVER REVEAL THEIR POLITICAL OPINONS!!! SEE I WENT TO HIGH SCHOOL AND NEVER DID I KNOW MY TEACHERS POLITICAL VEIWS!! YEAH TEACH THE KIDS THAT THEY WHEN THEY TURN 18 THEY TO HAVE A VOICE AND THE STEPS TO TAKE TO DO JUST THAT!!! THE KIDS COULD HAVE HAD A VOTE, BUT DONT FORGET ITS A PRIVATE AND PERSONAL CHOICE!! YOU SHOULD NEVER BE CALLED NAMES FOR YOUR ON VOTE!!! I JUST BELEIVE THE TEACHERS SHOULD HAVE SIT THIS ONE OUT QUIETLY!!!!

Was it a teacher that called your kid a racist or was it another kid? I find it extremely hard to believe a teacher would say something like that. If a kid did it then I fail to see how DEXTER MIDDLE SCHOOL has evoked hate into anything. Most middle school kids will take what they hear from their parents and will most likely vote the same way. Also, how do know that most of the staff voted for Obama??? Did they seperate the teacher votes from the kid votes? Sounds to me like most of your statements are a little over the top.

I never said who the teachers voted for and I never said a teacher called my child racist. However most of of the teachers did say thier party. Which I think was just not the smartest thing to maybe do, even for one to promote a party prference. Well back to my point my son was called racist by some students for voting for MCCAIN NOT OBAMA. I think It was the teachers who had the mock election,and In turn I think some kids took It to the level some adults seem to be going. As far as OBAMA If he was a repubilcan and shared my veiws I would vote for him as well I think my son would do the same. To me Its not the color of the skin but It Is the character,honesty, beleifs and view of this country. This will be my last word on this subject to think u guys thought I was over reacting carry on
