Teacher Disciplined over 'Most Likely to Become a Terrorist' Award

BBC News

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-40064966

.

.


Teachers at a school in Texas are being disciplined after handing out an
"award" declaring one student "most likely to become a terrorist".
Lizeth Villanueva, 13, was handed the award by her teacher during a mock
ceremony at the school near Houston.

.

A local education official described the incident as "a poor attempt at
poking fun."

.

But the student's mother told a local news channel: "It doesn't look like
a joke to me."

.

The fake certificate, signed by the teacher, was handed out the day after
the terrorist attack at a concert in Manchester, England, which killed 22
people, including children.

.

Lizeth's mother contacted Houston's KPRC 2 channel about the mock
ceremony, conducted with students in the advanced learning programme at
Anthony Aguirre Junior High in the town of Channelview.

.

"It was not a joke," Lizeth told KPRC 2. "I do not feel comfortable being
in the same classroom with [the teacher]."

.

The Washington Post reports that other awards included "most likely to cry
for every little thing" and "most likely to become homeless", all of which
were greeted with laughter from several teachers gathered in the room.

.

The school district released a statement apologising for "the insensitive
and offensive fake mock awards that were given to students".

Pregnant teenager banned from graduation ceremony

25 May 2017

BBC News

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-40045802

.

.


A pregnant US teenager branded "immoral" by her school and barred from its
graduation ceremony is to have her own event, organised by her parents.
Maddi Runkles, 18, who attends a small private Christian school in
Maryland, has been told she is not welcome at the event, on 2 June,
because she must be "accountable for her immorality".

.

Instead, her parents have decided to organise a special party for their
daughter the following day.

.

The decision by the board of governors of the Heritage Academy, in
Hagerstown, has drawn criticism on social media from those who say the
school is showing no Christian compassion to the teenager.

A Pregnant Teens Graduation Drama Reveals an Uncomfortable Divide Between
Pro-Lifers and Social Conservatives

Maddi Runkles is an 18-year-old senior at Heritage Academy, a small,
conservative Christian school in Hagerstown, Maryland. She is also
pregnant and has admitted to breaking the pledge that all Heritage
students sign, vowing to [protect] my body by abstaining from sexual
immorality and from the use of alcohol, tobacco, and illegal drugs. As the
New York Times reported a few days ago, the school is punishing her by
forbidding her from walking on graduation day in June and removing her
from her position on the student council.

.

Runkles story became national news this week because her family enlisted
the help of the feisty anti-abortion group Students for Life. Her cause is
compelling to pro-life groups because of one obvious fact: If she had
quietly procured an abortion, she would be walking at graduation next
month with the rest of her class. She made the courageous decision to
choose life, and she definitely should not be shamed, Students for Lifes
president, Kristan Hawkins, told the Times. There has got to be a way to
treat a young woman who becomes pregnant in a graceful and loving way.

.

Since the Times reported on Runkles, her dispute with the school has been
widely discussed in pro-life and Christian circles online. One site
praised her for committing to raise her son instead of secretly killing
him. On Tuesday, the schools administrator, David Hobbs, issued a
statement in response to the hubbub. Maddi is being disciplined, not
because shes pregnant, but because she was immoral, Hobbs wrote in a
letter posted to the schools website. The school is pleased that she has
chosen not to abort her son. However, her immorality is the original
choice she made that began this situation.

.

Runkles is an ideal emblem for the pro-life cause. She has a 4.0 GPA,
played on the Heritage soccer team, and describes herself as a a
practicing born-again Christian. A few days after she learned she was
pregnant in January, she found out she had been accepted to her dream
school, the ultraconservative Bob Jones University. And she is fluent in
the language and rituals of repentance: Rather than let Hobbs announce her
pregnancy to the school, Runkles opted to make the public announcement
herself. I wanted to confess what I did and ask for forgiveness from my
school, she told Breitbart.
