Texas Teacher Gives Student Zero on Report Because It’s About Guns

The Educational Industrial Complex is alive and well, indoctrinating even in the great state of Texas:

A Denton teacher allegedly refused to grade two student reports because they were about guns. Now one mother is demanded answers and an apology.

Marshall Williams said he and his classmates were told by Mr. Dewey Christian at Denton High School to write a report on anything that they were interested in using different types of sentence structures. He chose to write about the Fort Worth gun show.

But then he said his English teacher told him he would get a zero on the assignment because of the topic.

Williams’ mom confronted the teacher. She asked him if he had outlined any criteria for the topic and posted a video of his response on YouTube.

“So because it had guns in it you refused to grade it?” Kimberly Williams asked.

“Not just guns, but you see we’ve had a certain amount of violence and things in schools…” Christian replied.

“I’m not asking you about that. I’m asking you about the subject matter of his paper and why you took issue with it,” the mother said.

“The problem was not the subject matter…” the teacher said.

“You just told me it was the subject matter,” the mother said.

The family demanded an apology.

    He thinks Obama and the Democrats pay him. It is his state and his county that pays him. He should be grateful to all the gun toting Texans that pay his salary.

      They not only pay his salary, they are directly responsible for his right to free speech and all of his other rights. Without the Americans who are willing to accept their responsibility to protect this country, it’s citizens and the Bill of Rights with their guns, there would be No America, and none of these people would be around to whine about the meaniehead guns that empower them to have the option to dislike them. I can’t for the life of me figure out what their problem with guns is… guns haven’t even made it to the top 10 list for tools used in American deaths, but they are the #1 tool used in the fight for Freedom and Equality for Americans… Is it Freedom and Equality that they find offensive?

    Put him on the unemployment roles! He set the ground rules then gave out zero’s because he didn’t like the topic, did he say no gun topics? He is the zero!
