Superintendent Responds To Obama Teacher’s Abuse

I think most of you have already seen this revolting specimen of a teacher humiliate the McCain supporter in her class, a child who’s father is serving in Iraq, and who was nearly brought to tears by the teacher’s haranguing:

Well, the Superintendent of the school district, where Obama supporter Diatha Harris teaches, has posted a statement on his district’s website:

I was shocked when I saw the clip of an interaction between a Cumberland County Schools teacher and her students as posted on YouTube. While neutral discussion of the political process is appropriate, at no time, particularly with elementary students, should a teacher infuse his/her political views into the discussion. Most disconcerting was the military slant that made its way into this discussion. We are a military community, serving over 15,000 military students and their families. We value the sacrifices, not only of the military parents but also those of their families.

We believe that military children are our children, military spouses are many of our employees, and military service men and women are our heroes. We proudly serve our military children and have received national awards for our support of military families.

I was particularly disturbed to see the uncomfortable position in which our children were placed due to the inappropriate actions of one of our teachers. Please be assured that the actions exhibited in this video are not consistent with the vision of the CCS. Moreover, the actions of one teacher do not represent the 7000 employees in our organization.

Once the video was brought to my attention, I immediately launched an investigation. Personnel laws prevent me from releasing information regarding individual employees and personnel action taken. I can assure you that upon completion of the investigation, I will take appropriate action.

Dr. William Harrison
CCS’ Superintendent

I’m thinking that someone’s head is gonna roll, and thank God for small favors.  What an injustice that was.

  1. Thanks for the update Deb. This old girl is toast. Dr Harrison is probably more responsible that anyone for combining the Cumberland County School District with that of Fort Bragg. There is no way in hell she’d get away with that kind of crap around there.

    She was run off from Ashville in 2004, but, the Superintendent there will not say why.


  2. That was an exemplary letter that the superintendent wrote. I’ve never seen anyone in education make such a clear, patriotic statement.
