This happened in a middle school in New Haven, CT. Now, I went to college in New Haven; it is a poor community that has major problems with drugs and gangs. So, I am all for a teacher trying to give kids a sense of themselves and to teach them that they can grow beyond their environment and achieve success and change the circumstances of the life they were born into. This goes waaaaaaaaaaaay beyond that, and it is not acceptable.
