THANK YOU JOHN SULLIVAN! WE HOPE MORE EDUCATORS FOLLOW YOUR LEAD ON THIS ISSUE.
Wow, we need more educators in our school system like this guy! While his job is to educate students, we agree that Mr. Sullivan’s true allegiance is to his country and the children that belong to it LEGALLY.
When you have a classroom filled with children who do not speak the native tongue, are years behind their peers and do not understand the culture in which their parents invaded, it is incredibly EXHAUSTING. Not only to the teacher who is constantly trying to overcome these challenging new students, but on the AMERICAN students who are trying to learn and better themselves. I can think of better ways to spend our tax dollars (i.e. THE WALL)!
Fox News has additional details below:
A Hawaii high school teacher has come under fire after sending an email to faculty members Wednesday saying that he would refuse to teach students who have entered the U.S. illegally.
John Sullivan, the social studies teacher at Campbell High School in Ewa Beach on Oahu, sent the email in response to an email sent by a school counselour about students staying home from school due to deportation fears.
“This is another attack on the President over deportation,” Sullivan said in the email obtained by Hawaii News Now. “Their parents need to apply for immigration like everyone else. If they are here in the U.S. illegally, I won’t teach them.”
Jon Henry Lee, the school’s pincipal, told the station that he reminded Sullivan that the school does not “discriminate against any individuals” and that every registered student will be serviced.
Lee added that Sullivan broke school rules by using the department’s email system to share a political opinion.
Sullivan said that entire situation was a “misunderstanding.” He sent an email to Hawaii News Now saying his comment refered to being unable to teach kids who are home.
