CHANNELVIEW, Texas – a Houston-area school district has disciplined several teachers after a training of a mock-award, by her “most likely to become a terrorist.”
Certificates given to the 13-year-old girl and the other students this week at a high school in the east of Houston were supposed to be generated. But the Channelview Independent School District in a statement apologizing for the “insensitive and offensive fake mock awards.”
The girl’s mother, Ena Hernandez, says she was upset by the certificate given to her daughter, in particular, in the light of the recent deadly bomb attack at a pop concert in Manchester, England.
Channelview spokesman Mark Kramer told KPRC-TV in Houston that the certificates are a “poor attempt to poke fun at.”
The district has declined to disclose the punishment of the teachers received.
