Situation/Case Study:
TEACHER ROLE/RESPONSIBILITY

Description:
I was placed in an uncomfortable situation as a student commented on a jack-o-lantern trick or treat box. She voiced her opinion that "I wish you wouldn't bring that here to school." I asked and said, "It's just a jack-o-lantern, why? What's wrong with Halloween?" With a dirty look she stated in front of about 15 students, "That's like asking a Jew what's wrong with Christmas?"
