One of LilZ’s teachers did something I found odd last week. Actually, depending on when you talked to me, I may have actually been too outraged to refer to the incident using such a benign word as “odd.” It angered me to no end. It has since passed and I’ve spent a lot of time talking about it and thinking about it. I’ve come to a few conclusions about it, but I wanted to hear what you all had to say first. I’m not going to tell you what I may or may not have done in response to the situation, because I’m not sure I could explain myself well regarding such an emotional issue. I’ll wait to see what YOU have to say. I want to know what YOU would have done.
One of LilZ’s teachers (Remember – he’s in 8th grade at a public school) made everyone in the classroom take turns telling what church they went too.
Yes. What church they went to.
Now – I’ve already mentioned I was angry, but more because I feared my son would be looked down upon for my choices. But LilZ did not want me to do anything about it for fear of greater repurcusion.
So – my question: Would it have even angered you? What would you have done? How would you have discussed it with your child?
And more importantly — what do you think the teacher would have done if some kid said, “The church of SATAN.”
