Posting a Diary Entry
Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as
is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.
When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.
If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.
ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.
One diary daily maximum.
Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries
that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.
"....This story comes out of Kentucky where a South Laurel High School teacher, Ms. Kendra Baker wrote on the top of her school board all nice and pur-ty, “You can’t be a democrat & go to heaven.”
Now, Superintendent Doug Bennett told the Sentinel- Echo that the statement was made by a student & then the teacher wrote it on the board and that it was innocent.
“It should not be in the classroom at all,” says Mary Gilbert, a parent of a South Laurel Student who claims that she was bullied after trying to combat the statement in class. Gilbert fears that even the teacher may have been bullying her daughter as well as the other students. “What happened, should not have happened…. You don’t send them to school to have someone else’s opinion shoved down their throat and demand they agree with it. It’s appalling. it’s wrong.” Gilbert went on to say that her daughter is now requesting that she no longer attend the school and wants to attend Home School.
Upon investigation, district officials found the the teacher in violation of a district policy that charges teachers with the responsibility to maintain positive learning environments that are fostered by mutual respect and trust. Bennett says that Baker, who has been a high school teacher for 17 years, was reprimanded for her actions, but will continue teaching in her classroom......"
This is by far one of the more annoying aspects of our political environment, and I don't just mean in regards to here in Kentucky. This notion that somehow, the discriminatory, bigoted and misogynistic GOP has the patent on morality in any form, especially religious. What, you can tell the uninsured "should have been more responsible, so just die already" and the hungry "tough luck, we can't afford that, we got CEOs to keep up", and still think you can have some touch of morality to those views?
Wonder what gems of knowledge this high school teacher will unload for the next election cycle.
