Here’s another one of those “only in Florida” stories, that, sadly, could happen anywhere in the nation anymore. Talking Points Memo reports that a Weston, Florida, teacher has been accused of allegedly referring to a 14-year-old Muslim student as a “rag-head Taliban.” The incident happened in the Broward County Public schools; the student, Deyab-Houssein Wardini, told…

    Terrible link to the story. I couldn’t read the entire article and had to wait through a commercial. Hope this doesn’t get to be typical.

      Don’t forget to read the comments to see just what kind of “people” (term used loosely) are on the teacher’s side.

        As well as any administrator who didn’t initiate termination ASAP.

        the comments section on any rightwing site is horrendous. I think its because they are not only ignorant and racist but cowards.

          Sadly, that was a link to a Miami-Dade Newspaper.

      I don’t see a link at all.

    I still cannot read the entire article- at least on my screen the story truncates after a few sentences. I did visit the Daily Mail site and got some idea of what happened. I think the teacher is at best a little sensitivity challenged. She calls this ‘teasing’ which is in many cases bullying as she ought to and perhaps does, know. This all could have been headed off if she had simply apologized to this kid and his family. She sounds like an idiot. I was bullied in High School, not only by classmates but also by some teachers. It is sick and depraved and needs to be forcibly dealt with when it happens.

      Weston Florida is an area of “white flight”. People, racists moved west to “escape” the “scourage of the brown and black people”. This is not teasing this is bigotry and hate

      • Chinese Democracy March 6th, 2015 at 9:17 pm

        they could be escaping all the homosexshalls in Ft Lauderdale / Wilton Manners

    • Chinese Democracy March 6th, 2015 at 8:56 pm

      maybe it would have been best if she didn’t say it at all. There is no excuse for a teacher saying anything like this. PERIOD.

    We are still here and still looking for support. No bullying in our schools and if district cannot see that, then we are in big trouble,
