A teacher from New Hampshire has been removed from the classroom after video emerged of her dressed as Donald Trump and dancing to an obscene song. On Halloween, Kara Kelley, a teacher at Portsmouth High School, dressed up as Trump and was filmed dancing to the song "F--- Donald Trump" during one of her classes.

From Seacoast Online:

Superintendent of Schools Stephen Zadravec said Monday that he can't comment about specifics involving the incident, or the teacher, Kara Kelley, because it's a personnel matter.

"But I will say that the teacher is not presently in the classroom and we are investigating the situation," Zadravec said. "There is no place for offensive language in our school community, nor is it our practice in school to support or discredit political candidates."

I mean, good. The song definitely wasn't what I'd call school appropriate, and while the costume was hilarious, she should have made the student turn the music off instead of danced along to it. It's unrealistic to expect teachers to be entirely politically neutral, but a geometry class is not an appropriate location for a political discussion. I don't think she should lose her job over this, but I also don't think she should go undisciplined.
