Political Correctness Gone Wild- Teacher Attacked Then Blamed For ‘Threatening To Defend Herself’

A teacher in Baltimore, MD was attacked and isn’t getting any support from the school administration because, “she egged the student on by threatening to defend herself.” Threatened to defend herself? That is ludicrous! How can informing an aggressor that you will defend yourself be considered a threat? Does that mean that because I am angry with what the administration told Mrs. Berry that I can fly out there and beat up the person who said it? What is this politically correct, crazy, twisted (lots of expletives coming to mind), nation coming to?

I can tell you exactly where it is going, but I will not let it go there without a fight. I just got off the phone with Reginald F. Lewis High School in Baltimore and asked to speak with the person who told Mrs. Berry that she was responsible for being attacked. I was placed on hold for 10 minutes before I finally hung up. You know I’ll be calling back. Not only that, but I encourage you to do the same. Call, write letters, e-mails or blog about this yourself. Heck, do it all!

Phone: (410) 545-1783 or 545-1746

Let’s let them know that our teachers will never be able to effectively teach until they are respected. If the school administration doesn’t respect the teachers, why should the students?

  1. The situation described in your blog is sadly telling.It makes me very appreciative that I taught mostly in Idaho.In Idaho it’s a criminal offense to even speak threateningly to a teacher, to include raising your voice in anger or making derogatory comments in front of other people.

  2. That is the way it should be. Our kids are too important for anything less.
