BLACK BELT taekwon-do instructor. Political activist. High school sophomore. Samantha Pawlucy sure knows how to stand up for herself and stay true to her convictions.
A geometry teacher at Charles Carroll High School, in Port Richmond, on Friday ridiculed Pawlucy, 16, for wearing a "Romney/Ryan" T-shirt and told her to leave class, her mother, Kristine, told the Daily News Wednesday night.
The teacher told Samantha, " 'Your wearing a Romney shirt is like me wearing a KKK shirt,' " according to her parents, who said they intend to file a formal complaint Thursday with the district and the school.
The teacher was identified by Kristine Pawlucy, but the People Paper is withholding her name because she couldn't be reached for comment.
