She was? You know that how? Did you read her assignment?
And calling reciting the Mexican pledge of allegiance in a Spanish class betraying one's country is a little dramatic, don't you think?
No, I don't call it dramatic. Words have meaning, something you people only care about when a conservative is doing the talking.

Sure looks like it was retaliation for not following the indoctrination program. And why the pledge of the filthy scum known as mexicans? It was a Spanish class so why not something to do with Spain and not the invading trash?
That teacher needs it's tongue torn out with visegrips and sterilized then sonce it loves mexicans so much forced to put on roofing shingles .
Many countries speak Spanish--including Mexico. And in terms of learning the language, memorizing the Mexican pledge makes about a much sense as memorizing the first 18 lines of Chaucer's Canterbury Tales in Middle English, or most other acts of memorization carried out in schools.

The poor grade might or might not be an act of retaliation, but my common sense just suggests otherwise.

At any rate, I have very little reason to trust the wackaloons pushing their reconquista idea, and even less to trust the motives of the Thomas More Law Center.

No wonder you think that's OK.
You're willing to swear that her essay on the history of Mexico deserved a better grade than an F?

On what basis are you making that judgment?

Jesus hates homosexual activity, communism, socialism and evidence would seem to show Spanish speakers since every nation they inhabit is a disease center.
But, they did that nice job on the Inquisition--all in the name of Christianity.

Had she been given a C-, I'd be inclined to say it wasn't retaliation. But an F?
That's an "in your face" message being sent.

1. She could have crossed her fingers while saying it.

2. When she objected, she was provided an alternate assignment.

Where's the damage?

Because, of course, you have read the assignment and know that it deserved a C- rather than an F.

Is there any subject that you will simply admit that you don't have enough information to form an opinion on?

Nor do you to state the counter argument. See how that works?
How many times have you seen a kid get an F in a public school? I can't even think of two or three times in my life where I heard of it.

No doubt.

But I have no reason to believe that the message was "you refused my attempt at indoctrination so now I'll get you."

Perhaps the message was, "you should have taken this assignment seriously instead of trying to get off easy by claiming that you were opposed to indoctrination."

Seemed like it would appeal to someone who claims that God hates homosexuals, communists and socialists--and punishes Spanish-speaking countries by making them cess pools.

But then, we know you live a very insulated life.

And perhaps the girl's message was, "I'm a loyal American and refuse to pledge allegiance to another country. Why can I not be respected for that decision?"
You know damn well if a teacher tried the same stunt with a Muslim student and the Lord's Prayer, you'd be on the phone to the ACLU.

I am not the one claiming a nefarious conspiracy or filing a federal lawsuit. See how that works?

How insulated was I as a student in a public high school with an enrollment of 1500? The only time I ever heard of an F being given out was for an assignment not being turned in...after an initial warning.

“Meh.”

Heya! Former educator here! Failing grades are incredibly common, even in public schools. For a look at how common they are, looking at k-12 pass/fail rates for different districts should be a quick google away!

You would be if it involved a conservative teacher trying to force a student to say the US pledge of allegiance and then failing them on an assignment.
