When parents report this behavior to the district (about teachers, principals, etc) the complaints get ignored, forced into endless paperwork or result in blackmail scenarios. Don't believe the inference that anyone at the district from the Super on down really serve the children.

NOOO! Dieing in a fire is to easy for what this bigot bit$& needs! She needs to stand by and watch her family ( chillins, aunties ) etc, die in a fire, and be helpless.

I am white. Both of my children were students there. My race and views are different than Ms. Wright. But I disagree with the statement that she shouldn't be teaching.

We make mistakes. Acknowledging our errors and working to do better would be a best course.(Pun intended.)

Ms leftie GP! R u serious? Who knows wat eriversable damage she has made on her student! If it were my children, i assure you, i wiuld be digging deeper to find out just how much of her political views were thrust on my kids. But my children have already at an early age to tell me if any teacher makes that mistake.
