(Lifezette) Teachers tasked by taxpayers with educating their children are instead inserting their own anti-Trump biases into their lesson plans.

A Staten Island, New York, educator teacher placed an anti-President Trump question onto a middle school homework assignment — and then defended it as “freedom of speech,” reported The New York Post.

“Please keep your political views to yourself and do not try to influence my children on them. Thank you,” the dad wrote to the teacher.

Vincent Ungro, a dad from Annadale, New York, has an 11-year-old daughter who attends I.S. (Intermediate School) 75. She asked him for help with her vocabulary homework last Friday night because she was trying to fill in the blanks from a word bank to complete her assignment — and was really puzzled.
