Abbey Thompson, a member of the Lac du Flambeau Tribe, posted a photo
of her son Noahâ€™s completed homework assignment to Facebook, attracting
inflammatory responses from across the country and Canada.
â€śWhat happened after Chief Short Cake Died?â€ť is the question posed at
the top of the assignment â€” the answer to which was â€śSquaw Bury Short
Richard Vesbach, a third-year math teacher at LUHS and the one
responsible for assigning the homework, has since written a number of
â€śNone of that excuses what has happened and I take full
responsibility for my actions,â€ť Vesbach wrote. â€śNo one else is to blame
but me. As a result, LUHS has appropriately sent me home for the day. I
recommended that they not pay me.â€ť
School administrators would not comment on whether Vesbach would face further disciplinary action.
lol There's nothing offensive about it IMO. It was made out to be a silly joke. If the content of the joke itself was derogatory or insulting toward the Native American people, I could see the problem but it's not.
We need to maybe investigate the idea of over-correcting some political correctness's.
