I received an email from my daughters teacher about her use of the phrase holy cow. The teacher said she will make my daughter miss recess if she says it again but today she just had to meet with guidance counselor.


I guess i always thought of it as a funny saying and not racist against Indians.

 Send her back an e-mail that states, "If you punish my daughter one more time for this, I am suing you and the school for violating her right to free speech!".
