Which makes the really bad educators really stand out.
|Looks like Katelyn Campbell is still|
going to Wellesly in the fall, despite alleged
threats from her h.s. principal
Which, if reporting in the Charleston, West Virginia Gazette is true, we can nominate local high school principal George Aulenbacher as among the worst, and most tone deaf.
This started when Aulenbacher and/or other school administrators invited one Pam Stenzel speak at the school, George Washington High School
According to the Gazette, Stenzel's YouTube videos, anyway, has her saying some rather interesting things about birth control. According to the Gazette:
"In her YouTube videos, Stenzel shouts and says things such as women who take birth control are "10 times more likely to contract a disease . . . or end up sterile or dead." She allegedly told GW and Riverside students, "If your mom gives you birth control, she probably hates you.""
It turns out student Katelyn Campbell, 17, had some concerns about Stenzel's visit.
Aulenbacher "knowingly psychologically abused students" by allowing the assembly, where Stenzel used scare tactics that left some students crying and wanting to leave, Campbell said, as reported by the Charleston Gazette.
OK, Campbell was being pretty blunt. Kids these days, right?
According to the Gazette, here's what happened between Campbell and Aulenbacher at school
Aulenbacher called Campbell to the principal's office after she contacted media outlets about the assembly and said, "I am disappointed in you" and "How could you go to the press without telling me?" according to the complaint.
He then allegedly threatened to call Wellesley College, where Campbell has been accepted, and tell them about her actions. "How would you feel if I called your college and told them what bad character you have and what a backstabber you are?" he said, according to the complaint
As expecting, things are backfiring badly on Aulenbacher. Wellesley got wind of this problem and tweeted this: "Katelyn Campbell #Wellesley is excited to welcome you this fall."
Well, what did Aulenbacher expect? Wellesley isn't exactly averse to smart, outspoken women.
And Campbell wants the principal ousted, apparently. We'll see how that goes.
In other bad teacher news, a Texas educator at a private school has been accused of molesting a young student, but never fear. The teacher, Irene Stokes, assures the public she is innocent. She can prove it. The student in question is black. The teacher is white. The teacher says she is a racist who hates black people, so surely she would not touch a black kid, according to television station KHOU.
Boy are we relieved!
Of course, the girl's mother questions why a white racist is teaching at a predominantly black school, which is a pretty good question.
But we should use the past tense. The school said Stokes no longer works there, according to KHOU.
I guess every profession has its bad apples. At least they get weeded out.
