A Philadelphia high school student was told to leave class when she arrived wearing a Romney T-shirt. The geometry teacher at Charles Carroll High School told 16-year-old Samantha Pawlucy that wearing a Romney shirt is like “wearing a KKK shirt.”
“She told me to take off my shirt and said that she has another one if I need one. And then the teacher asked me, ‘Are your parents Republican?’” recounted Pawlucy to NBC10 in Philadelphia. “I said, ‘I don’t know.’ She said that’s like her wearing a KKK shirt.”
The teacher is still working for the school district, and has simply been transferred to another classroom. The teacher claims to have been joking.
“If it was a joke between two adults, I can take a joke like that but she didn’t know how to take it, she doesn’t understand, she actually thinks she did something wrong,” said Pawlucy’s father.
