Teacher Abuses Student over Yankees/Red Sox Rivalry

By Brian | September 27, 2009 | Share on Facebook

I know the Yankees have been beating up on the Red Sox lately, which can often lead to some harsh words in both ballparks, but you’d think we could keep the fourth grade classrooms in upstate New York peaceful, no?

Baldwinsville teacher, a Red Sox fan, makes student turn Yankees T-shirt inside out

Van Buren, NY — Van Buren Elementary fourth-grader Nathan Johns thought his teacher was kidding Wednesday when he instructed him to go to the bathroom and turn his Yankees T-shirt inside out.

Nate complied, and said he was later told to wear it that way until dismissal. At lunch, Nate said the fifth-graders made fun of him because he wearing his shirt inside out. “It was such a horrible day.” Nate said. “I don’t ever want anything like to happen again.” Nate said he felt he was treated unfairly. “Just because my teacher doesn’t like the Yankees, I should still have the right to wear a Yankees shirt,” Nate said Thursday after school. The teacher has Boston Red Sox paraphernalia displayed all over the classroom, he said.

This teacher needs to move back to Boston, for everybody’s sake…

    We teach tolerance in my family. We always say Yankees fans can be good people, too.

    Wow. This sort of thing always leaves me speechless. As a non-sports fan, I simply do not get it.
