Trump school project - Potential train wreck

This isn't really political so I'm putting it here.

My third grader's class has been assigned a biographical report. Each student must pick an historical or important figure, research him/her, and the final exam is to dress up as that person and deliver a short speech about them. My daughter is doing Jane Goodall.

A boy in the class picked Trump. And he is not a good kid. He's like the class clown except he's not funny. He's more like the "class distraction". He gets moved all the time because he can't sit next to anyone without being disruptive. He doesn't do homework. He gets terrible grades. He's just an all around bad student and pain in the ass.

And the final performance will be in front of all the third grade parents. I don't see how this could possibly go well. If he goes negative it will piss off a lot of people. If he goes positive it will piss A LOT of people. I look forward to it.

Sounds like a kid in one of my mom's classes. They were assigned to write about an artist on display at the local art museum. So he chose Hitler. Of course, Hitler doesn't have any art on display at the Des Moines Art Center, and he plagiarized most of his paper.

But that was a college student. At least third graders have an excuse for being dumb.

Maybe he will surprise you and just do a typical biography.

Re: Trump school project - Potential train wreck

Take away some people's hatred for Trump, he actually has had a fascinating life (and well documented life), which has led up to becoming president. Maybe he could just leave off the last 100 days or so....

And how do you possibly know so much about a random 3rd grader in your kids class?

He sounds like Trump's Mini-Me.

When do you start yelling at the kid?

The restraining order was only applicable to minority students.

Re: Trump school project - Potential train wreck

I volunteer a lot. I made a documentary about the second grade class that included him. He also did a skateboarding class with my daughter. But most of all I get frequent reports from my daughter and her friends about what inane thing the kid did that day.

Re: Trump school project - Potential train wreck

If he goes in-depth enough to make this political, he should get an A+. More than likely, a 3rd grader is going to end with a sentence that says, "And then he became president."

Probably never, the kid is a local.

You'll have to record it and post it here. Don't forget landscape mode.

Why do you care about what some random 3rd grader picks as a project?

I hope he builds a little mini-wall and offends the minorities there. That would be epic.

Because it has a lot of potential for outrage. It could make the neighborhood great again.

Re: Trump school project - Potential train wreck

Pretty sad you are looking forward to this as a potential outrage. Much less already label a 3rd grade kid. Shouldn't be a surprise however.

Re: Trump school project - Potential train wreck

Label a kid? Huh?

I'm not his teacher. I'll judge and label all I want.

I posses observational skills. I've seen his behavior and it is trouble. I've had to ask the teacher to move my daughter away from him. That's part of parenting. Watching out for trouble.

Some kids deserve compassion. Some kids are little shits.

I don't have enough information to determine that, in this case, but I have definitely seen it. Sometimes they grow out of it, sometimes not.
