The Arlington School District this weekend reinstated Bunn. You may recall from our post a week earlier that she had been suspended for telling a frequently disruptive Hispanic student “Go back to Mexico“, after he repeatedly asked her for a set of forms in Spanish, yelling “I’m Mexican…I’m Mexican”. Even after Ms. Bunn told him he could get Spanish-language forms in the main office, the kid continued to harrass her for Spanish forms, yelling “I’m Mexican…I’m Mexican”, after which Bunn admitted she lost her temper and told him where he could go (and indeed the vast majority of our commenters agreed with her sentiments).
On Friday, the school board voted 5-2 to reinstate her to the school. An emotional Bunn was brought to tears over the ordeal, and most of the parents in attendance were overjoyed to have this two-time “Teacher of the Year” back in class.
Thank you to everyone who responded to our post. Nearly 3,000 SWA members left messages on the school district’s Facebook page, and many thousands more sent emails or made phone calls to demand Bunn reinstatement, and the word spread as new site TheBlaze.com linked to our posts the next day.You made a big difference, and all’s well that ends well!
But not everyone was happy. The pro-amnesty group LULAC was in attendance and wanted Bunn terminated. They reacted angrily when the vote came through. Said Luis Castillo, a past president of the Arlington LULAC: “The Arlington School Board condones racial remarks by it’s teachers. That’s very disturbing.”
What’s really disturbing is that any school board would take an extremist group like LULAC seriously in the first place. This is the same group which has declared the U.S.-Mexican border “illegal”, and has been caught transporting illegal aliens from the border to Houston in their “shuttle vans”. And who can forget the Wisconsin LULAC member who once claimed that Arizona does not share a border with Mexico. NO elected official should ever again let LULAC in their door, let alone consider their advice seriously.
