Teacher Makes Kids Recite Gender Neutral Version of the Declaration of Independence: This Parent Did Something About It

"You teach what's written. You don't get to rewrite it and teach it how you feel you believe. -- Elizabeth Vaillancourt

ABC15 News reports a fourth grade teacher at Salk Elementary School in Mesa crossed out the words "man" and substituted it with the word "human."

Parent Elizabeth Vaillancourt was so outraged by the teacher's desecration of the Declaration of Independence that she posted a picture of the altered document on her Facebook page.

I was hurt. I was mortified. I was disturbed at the fact that somebody is changing historical documents and nobody has the right to change our historical documents," she told the television station.

School leadership told Vaillancourt that the Facebook posting "hurt the teacher's feelings," television station KGUN reported. (Photo Credit: Elizabeth Vaillancourt via Facebook)

Instead of dealing with a teacher forcing her political ideology on children, the school simply moved Vaillancourt's daughter to another classroom.

"You teach what's written. You don't get to rewrite it and teach it how you feel you believe," she said.

Mesa Public Schools later issued a statement admitting the teacher made a mistake by desecrating the Declaration of Independence.

"It should be recited as written, and not modified in any way. School administration, when learning of the alteration to the text, provided feedback and guidance to the teacher to restore the document to its original format," the statement read.
