WILLIAMSTON, Mich. (WNEM) - A teacher is under fire for refusing to let his fourth grade students watch the inauguration speech of President-Elect Donald Trump.
Brett Meteyer, of Explorer Elementary in Williamston, wrote to parents that his class will not be watching the inaugural address on Friday.
Meteyer said he has allowed students to watch the inaugural speeches of the last two presidents, but worries what Trump will say given his past remarks about minorities, women and the disabled.

This is along the same lines of something a friend of mine did.
I don't agree with it.
She teaches probably first or second grade, and had a mock election where most of her students voted for Trump.
She was so upset, she advertised on Facebook that she was going to have them revote the next day after being reeducated on the voting process. I couldn't agree with her on that. More reason for me to want to homeschool my kids, should I ever decide to have any.
Thankfully she got called out on it. Too bad she had to backtrack and delete her post about it.

I don`t think 4th graders really want to watch a boring inauguration, the kids probably feel like the teacher is doing them a favor by not making them watch it.

Meh. He cannot stop students from watching it. It's on youtube.
