TEXAS – 14 year old whiz kid, Ahmed Mohamed, brought a digital clock to his high school that he made from sratch his English teacher freaked out and called the cops.
Mohamed was than arrested by cops and held for making a hoax bomb. The cops are saying they will not file charges.
The English teacher should be fired not because they mistook a homemade clock for being a bomb but because they obviously had some pre-conceived thoughts about this boy. Running down there class list and coming across the name Ahmed Mohamed lead to a thought which sparked terror. The English teacher assumed the worst.
Education can not flourish when teachers are giving into paranoia and headlines. Schools should be welcoming and colorblind not an area of pre-judged ideas towards race, religion or sex.
