Farmington teacher accused of mistreating student on leave

A MI teacher has been put on leave after being accused of "violently snatching" a black student from his seat because he refused to stand for the pledge of allegiance.

Stone had quite recently begun his first week at East Middle School, yet his family isn't sure on the off chance that he'll backpedal.

Brian Chaney said, his 11-year-old son was forced to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance by a teacher consultant at East Middle School last week. Another teacher ridiculed and yelled at him for freely deciding to sit during the pledge the following day.

A MI sixth-grader was allegedly forcibly removed from his seat in class after refusing to stand for the pledge of allegiance last week.

"Stone hadn't previously encountered problems for his stance and 'doesn't despise anyone for standing for the flag or saying the national anthem or the Pledge of Allegiance, '" the outlet reported. "I didn't know what was going on".

He attended a recent school board meeting where he called out officials for the mistreatment of his son and violation of his rights. I told her that I don't pledge to a flag. I have to make a stance for this, ' Chaney said.

Australia beats Argentina 45-20 in Rugby Championship
Cape Town - The Wallabies heaped more misery on Argentina with victory in their Rugby Championship clash in Canberra on Saturday. Folau's two tries helped the Wallabies seal a good win.

In the meantime, Stone hasn't gone back to the school and his family said they are thinking of taking him out of the district. He said students have the right to skip the Pledge of Allegiance.

"We want people to know people have rights".

"It's his choice to sit", Brian Chaney said. He said people have asked him in the past about hsi decision not to stand but has never had an issue - until now.

Chaney said he'd prefer to keep his son, who he said is a 4.0 student, in the Farmington district, because "we've had a wonderful relationship".

"How many kids would be such critical thinkers and leaders to be able to walk to their own beat and blaze their own path?"

Phillina Mullin, Stone's mother, said the educator should not have touched Stone. A Native American teenager from northern California who had been sitting it out for years reportedly was docked a grade last year when she refused to stand for the pledge.
