A second grade public school teacher in North Carolina assigned her students to write about their hero, without any clarification as to who could and could not be included. Seems to be a straight forward assignment; a child chooses to write about an individual who they see as their hero, writes about that individual, and bingo, assignment completed.
8-year-old Ryleigh Watts chose Jesus Christ as her hero which the teacher found offensive. The teacher informed her to “choose another person”.
Most of us understand that not everyone is a Christian, but this particular Christian child chose to write about her hero, Jesus Christ and by doing so, her rights were violated. Of course the teacher and school are back peddling about their comment…
