US teacher reprimanded for writing 'you can't be a democrat and go to heaven' in class
An American teacher has been accused of ridiculing a student whose political views she didn't agree with, writing 'you can't be a democrat and go to heaven' on the whiteboard.
South Laurel High School psychology teacher Kendra Baker railed against same-sex marriage and Obamacare even after one student in the class, 17-year-old Chelsea Gilbert, asked her to stop, the New York Daily News reports.
"I feel like she was bullied by a teacher," Chelsea's mother Mary Gilbert told Lex 18 News.
Chelsea, a senior at the school and an Obama supporter, told the teacher she was offending people, her mom told Kentucky.com.
According to the report, the teacher, who later apologized, was reprimanded for the Nov. 13 incident but not fired.
