Sgt Richardson wanted to visit the sixth grade class and personally thank them for taking the time to write to him while on duty in Iraq. Instead he was escorted off campus.
What we have here is some self-important middle school principal who harbors a dislike, if not an outright hatred, of the American armed forces, and who is steadfastly opposed to our actions in Iraq and quite possibly in Afghanistan. This principal then decided to let her petty prejudices stand in the way of what would have been a memorable and rewarding experience for both Sgt. Richardson and the children of Matthew Lund's 6th grade class.
Corbett is saying that the teacher didn't follow protocol. The newspaper has signed and dated copies of the documentation submitted by Lund. Someone here isn't telling the truth. One thing for sure: Protocol be dammed, Ulrica Corbett could have found a way to allow this soldier to talk to the students who had befriended him. She didn't.
Whole thing here (scroll to June 2).
One more reason TWC loves no-choice mandatory public education. 'Cause the government KNOWS what's best for your kids.
