Father OUTRAGED After Finding This In His Son’s Backpack: “I Am Willing to Give Up Some of My Constitutional Rights…to Be Safer”
Jacksonville, Florida: Aaron Harvey’s son is in the 4th grade. Harvey was shocked to find the words, “I am willing to give up some of my constitutional rights in order to be safer or more secure written on an assignment that his son had brought home from school at Cedar Hills Elementary.
When Harvey asked his son why he wrote that sentence down, he was informed the child’s teacher asked him to copy it down.
After complaining to the school, Harvey was told that his son wrote the sentence down, “on his own free will.”
However, after checking into it more, it turned out that another parent had already complained about the lesson. Additionally, Harvey spoke to another child in the class who also said the teacher had asked students to write the phrase down.
“All the children are pointing at the teacher. They [the school] told me that my son wrote that on his own free will – there’s no way he knew how to write that on his own free will. He likes to use some big words to flourish – [but] if he was going to put together a sentence that political I’m sure it would be more jumbled than a nice sentence like that.”
Now that the story has gone public, thanks to The Blaze, the school district is promising to, “review and investigate” the incident. If it turns out that the teacher was encouraging children to give up their constitutional rights, let’s hope they do the right thing and fire her.
