Possibly the most ignorant and bias teacher in America! Forces his students to write a paper “People should not own pit bulls”

This was written by a woman named Amber Kay;

Hello Fellow Pit Bull Lovers!

 I am writing to you to gain support for my 16 year old son who is being forced by his High School English teacher to write a paper entitled, “People Should NOT own Pit Bulls”.

 After my husband died, my family dived headlong into dog rescue, and it was very helpful in the healing process for us. We worked with Bully Paws and often times took in pregnant, abused pits and nursed them and their pups into health and aided in the effort to find them loving Forever Homes. As a pit bull rescuer, and owner of several pit bulls, my family is adamantly opposed to writing about this topic as are many kids in the class. And they are not given a choice to write about the opposing views. My son and I have asked several times to write on the opposing viewpoint.

 Here is what the teacher says; “Yes, this is the paper asking students to use the topic “People Should Not Own Pit Bulls.”  When we began this project, several students mentioned that they owned pit bulls.

I said  that they didn’t have to BELIEVE people should not own pit bulls, but for the sake of this four paragraph research experience, I wanted them to use the four articles/sources I had provided to discuss two reasons why owning pit bulls could be dangerous.” 

A whole generation of children are getting their heads filled with harmful, biased “facts” on our beloved breed. Several of us have contacted the school. I just got off the phone with the Assistant Principle, Mr Cassaday, and he said, and I quote, “It is an approved topic and there is nothing wrong with it”. Wow!

 Won’t you please help and call the school and voice your opinion??  

703.365.6500 – ask for Mr Cassaday’s office.

Thank You!

Now call me crazy but…., WHAT THE HELL? It is an approved topic? Why owning pit bulls could be dangerous? Are you kidding me? And it sounds to me like the assistant principal needs to have his head examined as well!

 Here’s what I think, I think the kids should all write a paper on why they are leaving public school in favour of home schooling until such times as the school board can fill their institutions with people who can teach our children, understanding, the importance of, education over ignorance, that racial and breed profiling is wrong, and the definition of bias! This will only serve in farthing the already existing bias’ that these dogs face.

Of all the topics he could have picked to challenge these students, to make them really think about the world around them, this is what he chose?

Dear Lord! We are in serious trouble folks if a teacher can project and place their own bais’, fears and misguided view points on our children!

here is a link from BSL news with all the contact info, please support these kids, don’t let them be forced into writing this diatribe!

About apitome

I am a mother, a pit bull advocate, but mostly I am just like any of you, I am passionate about politics, the environment and dog advocacy. I want possitive changes within the judicial system as well. I want my children to grow up in a country where we are not told what breed of dog we can own. I want to see BSL put in the trash where it belongs! I want to see the constitution protected but not manipulated *see anything on the mosque near ground zero (USA) or changing Merry Christmas to Happy Holidays (Canada)* I am not racist in any way shape or form against any ethnic group, I do however have prejudices against bad behavior! If you abuse our laws, kids, the elderly, or animals, If you move to a new country and then demand that country to change everything about it's laws & way of life to suit your own agenda, If you blatantly break those laws with no regard and show no repect for them, if you engage in dog fighting or any other forms of animal abuse, torture or neglect, or if you are a pedophile, Than yes! You are on my radar for sure, and I will do EVERYTHING within my power to see you stopped and brought to justice! Furthering that goal, I have no qualms about publishing the names and faces of convicted abusers. I am not trying to change the world, I simply want to see things improve not backslide, Mostly for my children and these wonderful dogs futures! I may say things you agree with, and I may say things that you won't agree with, I may anger you, challenge you, or just plain piss you off, but in my book that's ok as long as long as it inspires some form of action on your part. This is not a popularity contest, If I have said anything about a group or person that you don't agree with please feel free to leave a comment or simply don't come back. If You have been mentioned in my blog it is for one of two reasons, you are either an advocate or you are an abuser loser, if you are the latter I could care less what you think! I value the opinions of trash about as much as I do that of a slug! Everything in print here is a matter of public record, or came from a trusted source, with that said, I am certainly willing to print both sides of any story, in an effort to be fair and always print the truth!
