Meet Kendra Baker.
This beautifully smiling young lady is a teacher at South Laurel County High School.
What makes her special?
Well, Kendra Baker was reprimanded by her district this week for writing a politically charged statement on the class whiteboard.
South Laurel County High School teacher Kendra Baker wrote, ‘You can’t be a democrat and go to heaven’ during a classroom discussion about politics after the elections.
The comment was reportedly made by a student, but Baker apparently agreed with it enough to put it on the board for everyone to see.
A student in the class snapped a picture of it and sent it to both the school board and the local paper the Sentinel-Echo.
‘It should not be in the classroom at all,’ said Mary Gilbert, mother of senior Chelsea Gilbert, told LEX18. ‘What happened, should not have happened…You don’t send them to school to have someone else’s opinions shoved down their throats and demand they agree with it. It’s appalling. It’s wrong.’
After investigating, district officials found Baker was in violation of a district policy mandating teachers maintain positive learning environments of mutual respect.
Superintendent Doug Bennett said Baker had been reprimanded but would continue to teach.
Baker has been a teacher for 17 years.
I tell you…
People and their politics…
I remember when I was young, my Grandma told me about rich men in heaven…
She told me that the rich were instructed by God to share their wealth for the betterment of mankind…
The verse she referenced is Matthew 19:24 ~
And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
And to be honest, there are a lot of rich Republicans that are headed to hell quicker than most.
