It sounds like a Denton, Texas high schooler did just what his English teacher asked of him. That’ll learn ‘im. According to myfoxdfw.com, “Marshall Williams said he and his classmates were told by Mr. Dewey Christian at Denton High School to write a report on anything that they were interested in using different types of sentence structures. He chose to write about the Fort Worth gun show.” Ruh roh. Did you say, “gun show” Marshall? Mr. Christian mutinied when young Master Williams handed in his theme, telling the lad he’d receive a zero grade because of the subject matter he chose. When Marshall’s mom heard the story, she confronted the hoplophobic instructor . . .
That’s him, above, bobbing and weaving like Ali in Manilla as Mr. Williams gives him the third degree on his grading policy.
The Denton Independent School District said in a statement, “The teacher has accepted the paper and apologized to the student for misperceptions. The teacher’s intent was for guns not to be trivialized in any school situation because of recent events.”
No word on the grade Marshall received. Still, mom’s not happy
“If it went against any district policy I would support it completely, but it doesn’t. It’s just his own moral beliefs trying to be put in his classroom and I disagree with that,” Kimberly Williams said.
