I Almost Feel Bad For This Woman, But the Uninformed Get What they Deserve

November 7, 2008

Almost. That is contempt you hear.

Update:  MIchelle has posted the Superintendent’s response to this travesty:

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



  1. I have just retired after 35 years in education. This video is horrible. Quite frankly, I would do everything I could to make sure that this person would never again be in a position of such importance as that of a teacher. I would hope that Dr. Harrison sees this for what it is, a bully pulpit, and fires this individual. She is an afront to all of the teachers that work everyday to try and educate the most important thing in our society, our children.

  3. She needs to be removed immediately! Ignorant teachers will prevail under Obama!
