Teacher Shows Porn to Class & 2 Honor Students Get Suspended

Cover-ups seem to the politically correct thing to do when a liberal is caught doing something wrong. After all, the White House is still trying to cover up Benghazi, the IRS and Fast and Furious scandals. They are also still trying to cover-up the huge failures of Obamacare by reporting inaccurate information and calling everyone with problems liars.

In most cover-ups, the blame is generally miss-directed to a subordinate scapegoat or to an innocent party. In the IRS scandal, Lois Lerner is being sacrificed as the scapegoat when it seems fairly obvious that the orders to target conservative, patriotic and Christian groups came directly from the White House.  Slain US Ambassador Chris Stevens has been left to hold the blame for Benghazi when Hillary Clinton is the guilty party for allowing the massacre to take place.

Now we see a high school in Kansas City, Kansas following suit with a cover-up of a teacher’s shameful actions by suspending two innocent honor students.

The incident took place during the first period of the day at J.C. Harmon High School. The biology teacher, who has not been identified, had evidently been viewing porn on his laptop at school. When the teacher turned on the projector that was connected to his computer, an image of a naked woman in a compromising position appeared on the screen in front of the classroom full of students.

A freshman girl in the class was concerned with what she saw and from her vantage point in the classroom; she was able to take a photo of the teacher’s laptop, projector and screen with the pornographic image in plain view. The girl, an honor student, texted the photo to her boyfriend, also an honor student and asked him what should she do about it. The boyfriend then forwarded the photo to one of his friends who then posted it on his private Facebook page.

Before the day was over, both the girl and her boyfriend had been pulled out of class twice, the final time to be informed that they were being suspended for two days for inappropriate use of electronics. The girl was in tears when she got home and informed her mother, Laura Lester, what had happened.

Lester, and Karen Winkel, the mother of the suspended boyfriend, were both very upset about what happened to their kids and tried to talk to school officials to no avail. They next contacted an attorney only to find out that Kansas has a state law that forbids the appeal of this type of suspension. Sounds like a very bad law if you ask me.

With no legal recourse available, the two parents turned to the local news agency to publicize the injustice being dealt out on their kids. Both students are honor students and are planning on trying to get into good colleges, but having a suspension on their record could dash those hopes to pieces. Even though the parents gave their permission for the news to cover the story and talk to school officials, the school refused to talk to them.

After the story hit the news, the school has offered to sit down and talk again with the parents. In the meantime, the teacher has supposedly been placed on paid administrative leave pending an investigation on his conduct.

Someone explain to me why the girl was suspended? She witnessed something wrong, took the photo as evidence of what she saw and then asked her boyfriend what to do. Should she say something to school officials or just be quiet and ignore what happened? She did nothing wrong but was unfairly punished because of the teacher’s wrong doing.

I wonder if the school would have even investigated the teacher had the girl not taken the photo of what happened? Would they have dismissed the incident entirely based upon he said versus what students said?

It’s sad to see another case of public school officials wrongly punishing students for trivial things or things that aren’t their fault. Such is the nature of the socialist agenda permeating our public schools.
