A teacher at the Institute Menéndez Tolosa in the city of La Línea de la Concepcion has been denounced by a Muslim family in the same city. The family believes that its son, a student in first year of secondary school, was offended during a geography class, it was reported to this newspaper.
The teacher was giving a normal lesson about the different climates on our planet, and he used the locality of Trevélez [Granada] as example of a cold and dry climate. For an anecdote, the teacher explained that precisely this climate was best for the curing of hams. Then the student demanded of the teacher, “Don’t speak about hams,” because this subject was offensive for him as he is a Muslim.
The teacher is accused of being an author of a supposed crime of mistreatment, and of having racist motivations and xenophobia.
The Provincial Delegation of the Council of Education also confirmed yesterday to this newspaper that it knew for certain that these facts had been produced, and that a teacher had been denounced to the National Police, but declined to elaborate any further.
The State police have opened an investigation of these facts as denounced by the family of the minor, and it will be necessary to wait for the judicial authority to issue an opinion on whether the case “lacks merit” [a sort of tribunal with a judge].
You know, I could not make stuff like this up.
And given the super political correctness being foisted on us, it is only a matter of time until this nonsense happens here.
