CHICAGO — A girl and her grandparents have sued the Chicago Board of Education, alleging that a substitute teacher showed the R-rated film "Brokeback Mountain" in class.No warning, no permission slips for parents to sign. She just plugged the tape in and forced her views on a class of 8th-graders. Can you say "INDOCTRINATION"? And just to show you what a wonderful teacher this crackpot is, check this out:
The lawsuit claims that Jessica Turner, 12, suffered psychological distress after viewing the movie in her 8th grade class at Ashburn Community Elementary School last year.
The substitute asked a student to shut the classroom door at the West Side school, saying: "What happens in Ms. Buford's class stays in Ms. Buford's class," according to the lawsuit.This buffoon ought to be fired, and have an alert go out to school districts all across the country, warning them about what a schlub she is. Normally, I really don't have much use for lawsuits. But I hope these parents, and others, hire a really good lawyer, sue this school district for all it has, and run show the world just what kind of "learning" environments their children are being exposed to.
