No politics in class

New York Teacher

The middle school principal who told her teachers via email that they should support Palestinian liberation and demand sanctions be placed on Israel is totally out of order for doing so. How dare she intimidate the staff by such comments. If she feels that way, that is her choice, but her comments should not be made within an educational setting.

School is a place to learn, not for political rhetoric. Keep political opinions out of the schools. They do not belong there! The education system in our city and country is already in enough turmoil due to COVID-19 and other social, economic and racial issues.
