"First, I thought it was a joke," said Kenneth Clayton of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People’s Paterson branch. "I couldn’t believe any adult would act that stupid, and would have a perception of our children that’s so demeaning and negative."
When I learned that the 1st grade teacher made this type of comment I was OUTRAGED. I must concur with the Rev. Kenneth Clayton, President of the Paterson Branch NAACP, that this is an adult teacher would act that stupid and make those type of comments regarding her 1st grade students. These students are seven years old!
I am calling upon Governor Chris Christie, and the District Administration to revoke Jennifer Schmidt O'Brien's teaching certification in the State of New Jersey.
