A few students at a school in Texas sparked outrage over their presentation. Apparently, societies morals have downgraded so far, that performing a skit about murdering your future president is considered acceptable!
Reports revealed that the teacher asked all teens to submit their skits for approval ahead of time. In other words, the teacher should have caught this little screw up. Either she didn’t do her job, or she was okay with an assassination presentation. So which was it?
Two sophomores at Marshall High School in San Antonio, Texas, were punished after they performed a sketch titled ‘The Assassination of Donald Trump’ last week, according to the Express-News.
Barry Perez, a spokesperson for the school district, said ‘appropriate action’ had been taken, but Harold and Melinda Bean, the parents of another student, were ‘angry’ and ‘shocked’ that harsher measures were not taken.
During the skit, one of the boys made a gunfire sound effect with his cellphone while the other boy, who played Trump, fell to the ground.
The teacher did not condone the performance and stopped her students before they could finish, according to Perez, who said school officials had conducted an investigation.
The teacher also apologized, and Perez said ‘appropriate action’ had been taken.
But, the Beans complained to district officials about the school district’s poor response.
Melinda Bean told reporters that the two students should have been suspended, adding: ‘Honestly I have run out of words to describe how angry I am and how shocked I am that they’re still in school today.’
Harold Bean also mentioned that the teacher should have stopped the students from performing the skit immediately after hearing the title.
He then added: ‘I don’t understand how the teacher can repeat an apology and be right there back at work on Monday morning.’
“Pardon my language but I think that it’s a bunch of B.S. if they’re going to tell you the kids were stopped,” Harold Bean said. “I will agree with one part — that the paperwork that had been submitted was supposedly not what they presented. But then my question would be, after they announced the title of their presentation, why did she still allow it to be presented?”
“When the campus investigated this, they found the teacher did not condone this, she did not allow this, she was surprised as anyone else that this was mentioned, and she told the boys to stop and that it was not appropriate,” Perez stated.
