Teacher Scolds Student For Wearing Romney T-Shirt

 

PHILADELPHIA (TRP) — A 16-year-old high school student says she was mocked by her own teacher after she arrived to class wearing a t-shirt supporting GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

The alleged incident happened at Charles Carroll High School and it has sophomore Samantha Pawlucy and her family fuming.

Pawlucy spoke to PIX11’s Larry Mente Thursday morning during an appearance on “The New IQ’s 106.9 Morning Show.”

“The teacher yelled at me and told me to get out of the classroom,” Pawlucy said, recounting the initial confrontation with the unidentified teacher. “She then went into the hallway and screamed ‘this girl is wearing a Romney-Ryan t-shirt.'”

“Then a whole bunch of kids came in and a [teacher’s assistant] took a marker and pretended to draw on my shirt and then told me to take off my shirt,” she said.

The teen also said that the teacher went as far as equating the Romney t-shirt to wearing a “KKK shirt.”

“People were telling me not to come to school, saying they were going to hit me and stuff like that,” the teen said, referring to threats posted by fellow-students on her Facebook page in response to her political attire.

A spokesman for the Philadelphia School District said Pawlucy had every right to wear the t-shirt. An investigation into the alleged incident is now underway, officials said.
