Tara Harris Charged With Assault After Stephanie Bennett Says Daughter Cut Hand in ‘Islami Hand Sign’ Drill |

RRD: Today The Blaze,( Glenn Beck’s publication) reported that Tara Harris ,a schoolteacher at the Butts Road Intermediate School in Chesapeake Virginia, was charged with simple assault for causing a student to cut her hand while forcing the student to perform a Muslim Hand gesture. According to the Blaze,Stephanie Bennett,the mother of the ten year old girl told them that:

…”Harris has a disturbing trend of “indoctrinating
students with Islamic teachings.” She also said the teacher openly campaigns for President Barack Obama in the classroom and that:

…“The teacher was going over Islamic hand signs with the children — she stayed on this issue for two days straight during their reading and math class,” she said.”…

RRD: According to Bennett when her daughter–who has a learning disability–was unable to perform the hand sign correctly after two days, Harris:

… “went over and yanked her hand out of her desk and my daughter’s hand got hung up on the metal wire on her file folder and the skin got caught on it” ….

…..“The other children saw my daughter’s hand dripping with blood after the teacher had gotten so mad that she went to twist my daughter’s hand into an Islamic sign.”…

Bennett also told The Blaze that Harris prays to Allah five times a day & seeks to persuade students that Islam is superior to other religions. Bennett claims that other parents share her concerns,and  according to The Blaze :

…”One of those parents, Nita Redditt, told TheBlaze that her young son confirmed Bennett’s story. The boy said he was “scared” to go back to school the next day after she found out, she added. “I think he was intimidated,” Redditt said. “I couldn’t believe what was going on in the classroom in regards to this teacher praying to Allah and having them pray with her.”…

Bennett also complained that she was not informed that another parent had complained to school officials about :

…”Harris campaigning for Obama in the classroom and bashing Republican GOP nominee Mitt Romney.”…

The Virginian Pilot partially confirmed the story:
