"Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence." - Dr. Carl Sagan
Although they've met with school officials about the incident, neither Samantha nor her father are satisfied. "The teacher told us it was a joke. That she jokes around with students. There's nothing funny about what she did."
The school district confirmed to CNBC that an incident occurred and it is conducting an investigation to determine whether disciplinary action is necessary.
I would say that those two highlighted statements would confirm the girl isn't lying..... but hey I understand the need for liberals to come to the defense of another liberal ... no matter what was done
No one would ever say that CNBC was a conservative station , yet that is the what was used as a source.

This sounds like a Teachers Union is testing waters how well they can hold their power in the face of republican taxpayers.
If this happened as the story depicts, I don't care if the teacher was joking, it was wrong. Teachers, particularly public school teachers, should be non-partisan while on the job. One of the best teachers I ever had was my high school political science teacher. We had the best discussions and debates in that class. He really got us all to think about our positions, regardless of what those positions were. And to this day I don't know what his personal political leanings were.
maybe i missed something? didn't see it though
A working class hero is something to be
My whole point is, the teacher supposedly pointed a marker at the student and made an x in gesture. How is this offensive? Why would this make someone feel like they can't go to school?
I used to get beat up at the bus stop almost everyday on the way home from school. It didn't make me afraid to go to school, but I did stop riding the bus. Maybe I have a thicker skin than most people since I had to put up with so much crap at school. The call it bullying today, back then it was considered normal behavior in school.
Scientific fact: If you took all of the veins from your body and laid them end to end, you would die.
Does anyone else notice the complete irony of a republican girl complaining because she gets no respect? get used to it honey, no one in the Romney campaign or the modern republican party wants women to have opinions of choices. You are laughed at and mocked whiole men make decisions about what you can do with your body, while they decide you are not entitled to the same pay as a man, and when they decide rape is just a way to make you pregnant. If this is the worst you ever get in your life, then thank a democrat for protecting your rights. The only reasons republicans care you were mocked is because you were wearing a republican T-shirt. If you were wearing a dem t-shirt they would be the ones mocking you, and removing your right to complain because you are a woman and the bible says you are not as good as a man.
I just cannot believe her whining she wants respect while endorsing the party of overwhelming sexism.
