Samantha Pawlucy, a sophomore at Carroll High, said her geometry teacher publicly humiliated her by asking why she was wearing a Romney/Ryan T-shirt and going into the hallway to urge other teachers and students to mock her.

The teacher then allegedly called a non-teaching assistant into the room who tried to write on the t-shirt with a marker. She was allegedly told to remove her shirt and she would be given another one.

During the incident, Samantha Pawlucy said the teacher told her that Carroll High is a "Democratic school" and wearing a Republican shirt is akin to the teacher, who is black, wearing a KKK shirt.

The union will see to it that the teacher receives no more than a slap on the wrist, if he doesn't actually end up with a commendation. It's way past time to switch to vouchers for private schools.
