Monroe Teacher, Alan Barron Suspended

Monroe Middle School teacher Alan Barron remains suspended only two weeks before he is set to retire after 36 years with the district while administrators investigate whether his teaching methods about black history were inappropriate.

Mr. Barron, 59, was placed on paid administrative leave almost two weeks ago after an assistant principal sat in on his history class while Mr. Barron was discussing the Jim Crow racial segregation laws. As part of the instruction, he showed a video of how white people back then used blackface to imitate African Americans during what they considered entertainment in the 1800s. #According to parents whose children are in the eighth- grade class, the administrator thought the lesson plan was offensive and racist. Mr. Barron was suspended the next day.

Adrienne Aaron’s husband is African American, and their child was in the class. She said Mr. Barron simply was showing the students what occurred in history. She said her daughter was not offended and felt the subject needs to be discussed.

“She was more offended that they stopped the video,” Mrs. Aaron said. “It had nothing to do with racism. History is history. We need to educate our kids to see how far we’ve come in America. How is that racism?”

…. Many parents and students, however, have been rallying for Mr. Barron, who is retiring at the end of this school year after 36 years in the classroom. #A student has been making and distributing T-shirts in support of Mr. Barron, and parents have been campaigning through social media to spread their word. #“Mr. Barron is one of the … great teachers we have in Monroe Public Schools,” one parent wrote in a letter that was distributed through Facebook. “ He has changed many children’s lives over the course of his career. If Mr. Barron felt that he was teaching something that was offensive, he would most definitely not have done it.” #During his suspension, Mr. Barron is not allowed to attend district functions, including an annual banquet where retiring teachers are honored. #“It’s so sad this has happened to him,” Mrs. Aaron said. “He’s one of the best teachers we’ve had. We can’t believe that this is happening.”

What’s wrong with these lunatics?  Are we to pretend this never happened? 

There is a bright side, though, if we continue this path the crazies would no longer be able to cry for reparations.

    Full circle. American racism used to be dominated by the degradation of the darker skin color. Now it’s dominated by the elevation of it.

      Yep, they didn’t learn. But learning probably doesn’t get the most votes! So expect more ot the same until they see the winds of having to change. 😆

    I’m surprised he’s still teaching. Here in Australia there are very few men in the lower schools (age 5-11) and less and less in the upper schools (12-18). They are scared of being unjustly accused of inappropriate behaviour, especially due to false allegations from schoolgirls. This has been aided and abetted by leftist feminists, who have captured the primary school sector and are working their way through the high school sector.

    So men are no longer entering the teaching profession. They no longer dare to.

    One person, at least, is fighting back against this kind of idiocy :

    Let’s hope it starts a trend.

    Those who control the present, control the past. The truth no longer matters.
