Conservatives might be surprised to find out that demonstrating an affinity for Republican candidate Mitt Romney is like joining the Ku Klux Klan. At least that’s what a student at Charles Carroll High School in Pennsylvania was told when she wore a Romney-Ryan t-shirt to her geometry class.
“The teacher allegedly told the girl to take off the shirt, saying it was like wearing a Ku Klux Klan sheet,” reports Philly.com. “The teacher also allegedly said that Carroll was ‘a Democratic school.’”
According to Jonathan Lai and Kristen A. Graham, staff writers for the Philly Inquirer, it wasn’t just the teacher who participated in this travesty. “The teacher then allegedly called a non-teaching assistant into the room who tried to write on the t-shirt with a marker,” they report.
The teacher continues to teach geometry in another class that does not contain the student, Samantha Pawlucy, while the school conducts an investigation.
