Evidently a substitute teacher at a local high school recently told a student to “speak English, we’re in America”.
Now LULAC is calling on the Texas Education Agency to revoke the teacher’s teaching certificate.
No one that I know of was there to witness the event so we don’t know what (if anything) led up to the event. We don’t know the teacher’s background. She might of been trying to give what she thought was good advice.
If you are of the view that the teacher’s instruction was inappropriate, does this rise the level where she should lose her license?
Maybe counseling would be in order.
Maybe a reprimand would be appropriate.
Maybe we should thank her for trying to help a youngster.
We seem to be losing our sense of scale.
We deserve better
