A Pennsylvania student and her mother have expressed outrage after a teacher’s aide made disparaging remarks about President-elect Barack Obama
“The student – a 16-year-old girl – told her parents that an aide at the AW Beattie Career Center on Babcock Blvd. in Allison Park yelled, among other things, that Obama was going to be shot, our flag would be changed to the KFC flag, and the National Anthem would be changed to ‘Moving On Up.'”
“The student’s mother – Mara Gilligan – told KDKA TV that her daughter is bi-racial and she was deeply disturbed by the comments.”
“Gilligan said that Beattie’s administrative director sent her an e-mail, stating that the aide who made the comments would be suspended, pending further investigation, and that he would be disciplined appropriately.”
