Black Student ‘Violently’ Assaulted By His Teacher For Not Standing During The Pledge of Allegiance
Stone Chaney, a sixth-grade student at East Middle School in Farmington Hills, Michigan, says he was ‘violently’ dragged from his seat by his teacher who attempted to force him to stand up during the daily pledge of allegiance.
“The teacher consultant comes up behind me and snatches me out of my chair violently,” Stone told the news site. “I was so confused. I didn’t know what was going on.”
Note that Stone referred to the individual in question as the “teacher consultant.” That means that the person who allegedly thought it was all right to snatch a child out of his seat trains other teachers. One would wonder what kind of training those other teachers are receiving.
Except I can tell you exactly what, because Stone claims that the very next day after the initial incident, another teacher yelled at him for remaining seated during the pledge.
Stone is very adamant about not standing, saying that he does not pledge to a flag.
“I don’t stand because I don’t pledge to a flag,” the precocious child explained. “I pledge to God and family.”
Stone’s parents are still looking for answers as to how the incident, which occurred Sept. 7., could have unfolded the way it did. His father addressed the district directly at its last board meeting, defending his son’s right to do what he wishes when the pledge is being spoken.
“It’s his choice to sit,” Brian Chaney said. “I don’t make him sit. And they should respect that.”
The superintendent of Farmington Public Schools released a statement detailing that the district does support the right of students to opt out of the pledge, announcing that it was conducting an investigation and that the teacher involved has been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome.
In the meantime, Stone and his family are looking into other options and will probably end up leaving the district, the news station notes.
