I wish people would leave well enough alone. These school are going too far and it's sad that they had to remove the kid from her classroom?? I wonder why?

They said what the teacher did ultimately was against school policy, which is good.

There is no reason to change the Declaration of Independence and make it something it isn't.  

Very very odd story.

You don't get to rewrite it because it's not PC enough to suit you.

Yes. It seems like there may be some past issues between the teacher and the mother.

Especially since the child was removed from the class.

It does seem a little vague about that...the removal of the child from the classroom. 

My guess is because the teacher's feelings were hurt.

I'm wondering the same..if there isn't more to the story with a previous experience (or more) between the Mom and the teacher.

This is how I personally feel about it.

There could have been something else the teacher could have done as far as how things were written then as opposed to how they are now. That some history of the time-frame of the writing of this document to how we look at things now. And so on.

I hope so, because the teacher getting her feelings hurt seems a bit ridiculous! She might like to grow a spine....:)

Anytime history is taught it should be taught with the preface of what the Norms were for the times. Helps keeps things in perspective
