I had that teacher, I think. His second lesson was how to use angles to efficiently dismember a body.

Perhaps he can practice with chalk on the wall of a cell for awhile.

This right-wing nut should have his teaching license revoke and never allowed to be around children again. What a sick and inappropriate thing to say; but then to say it around kids. At least the kids were smart enough to realize that what the teacher did was wrong, so they reported him. I plan on writing that schools superintendent and demand that he fire that teacher immediately.

Hysteria.

Joseph Brown, a senior in the geometry class, said, "He was talking about angles and said,'If you're in this building, you would need to take this angle to shoot the president.' "

What President? The Senior Class President? The Math Club President?

Yet the headline reads if shooting Obama. Just a bit misleading don't you think?

Wait....this is an Iris post.

Hey, Patty, were you this hysterical and on the verge of stroke when that "Assassination of George Bush" movie came out? Yeah, I didn't think so! So your righteous indignation further illustrates your hypocrisy!

Pat, in all fairness, how do we know he's right-wing. Obama is a lot more conservative than Americans wanted.

See, that's where you're wrong, my Kumbaya-singing friend! To me, both instances are deplorable, just as you believe, supposedly. But not Patty! Just one is unpatriotic!(And the "fright wing" stuff was funny for a while, but now it is so hopelesly out of date. Come up with something new.)

Why should he use any president as an example, truly poor thinking on his part.

Poor taste. Wouldn't want it said about Bush, Clinton or Obama.

That's the state of SOME teachers and the classrooms your child sits in.

Do something. Vote for candidates who support parent choice vouchers, so that YOU pick the school: charter, public, private, Virtual whatever, you want your child to attend.

STOP the federalization of education. Keep it in LOCAL control.
