    Pa. student who wore Romney shirt: Teacher 'told me to get out of the classroom'

    "She told me to take off my shirt and said that she has another one if I need one. And then the teacher asked meÖ 'Are your parents Republican?' I said, 'I don't know.' She said that's like her wearing a KKK shirt."
    Samantha was so embarrassed by the public criticism in front of her classmates that she told her parents she didnít want to return to school.
    "I didn't know what to think, I didn't think it was right at all."

    They requested a meeting with the principal and the teacher. The teacher apologized to Samantha and her parents saying that the statement was meant as a joke.

    "It was funny to her, but I was really embarrassed," Samantha said.

    Censorship is the answer. I used to get kicked out out of class on a regular basis for wearing "safe sex" shirts. Lol. I used to ask my mom "do you want to come get me later for lunch and hangout?" If she said yes I'd go to school in one of my shirts:

    Big Dicks Condoms
    Giant Peckers
    Nibble My Nuts

    All some of my favorites all got me asked to leave lol. It became a contest between me and the school and as long as my grades stayed high my parents didn't care.

    Free Speach dude!!!!!!!!!! It is worth the fight!!!!!! I'd sew an Obama and Romney shirt together and wear that ****er to school next!!!

    Honestly, I think the teacher should at least be suspended for this. To chastise this girl in class, and essentially call her a racist for wearing a presidential candidate's campaign shirt is uncalled for.

    I am not a Romney supporter but this is just nuts..as long as the shirt didnt say anything offensive what is the problem?

    I remember reading about students who were repulican clashing with their professors in college with were liberal..

    Go figure.

    You just know that, as awful as this behavior is, the union will support the teacher.

    Meh. None of us were there so we have no idea what the context of the whole thing was. The teacher claims she was joking. She very well couldve been. If she was, the kid needs to lighten the **** up. If this is the case, then the kid and her parents are obviously being *******s and just trying to make a mountain out of a molehill for political reasons.

    If the teacher was being serious and now is lying when she claims she was joking, then she is way out of line.

    Since we really have no way of knowing, we shouldnt overreact either way. In fact, this shouldnt even be a story unless the media knows the truth. My guess would be the teacher was just ****ing with the kid, but who knows. Based on the kid's statement that "It was funny to her" meaning she even sensed the teacher was joking, Im thinking the kid is being a little ****.

    Honey, loosen up would ya....

    Not really a big story. This happens a lot on both sides. It even happened at my school when Obama won in 08. The teacher is at fault here, and the school should handle it.

    As a teacher... you need the context... I have never had a student leave my school knowing my political beliefs... at least not in their entirety... some times things are unavoidable to remain an honest person... usually censorship in schools goes the other way... we are not allowed to express political, religious beliefs, etc... the issue of unions in public schools are SO overstated... they take student statements from classes when a teacher is up for being discipline tiered... school administrations are advocates for students and teachers... but education, like all professions, draws poor performers... it is a local issue and not news...

    If true, it's funny that the teacher was so up in arms about this. It shows how clueless and partisan the teacher really is. The "R" next to his name clearly must stand for racist in her eyes. Romney and Obama are the same damn candidate. Dude was Governor of Massachusetts for ****'s sake. You're not allowed to be in politics there if you aren't a "liberal".
