Just a concerned parent

             In September 2013, Robert Small, a concerned father, was arrested for simply asking a question about the Common Core school system. There was a meeting for parents and school district leaders in Maryland to discuss education and Small was constantly interrupted by the leaders while trying to get his question out. In the middle of speaking, when being interrupted didn’t work, the security guard showed up and forcefully moved him out of the area and arrested him. Small was very upset that all the other parents weren’t saying anything while he kept trying. He was possibly looking at 10 ½ years in jail just for having a question.FirefoxScreenSnapz067

            The security guard had no right to manhandle Small. This was a public forum and he has the right to express what he wants according to the 1st Amendment. Not only was the security guard wrong, but so were the leaders. They never let him speak! This is ridiculous and unfair! It shows how we really don’t have the freedom to say what we want. Robert Small was invited along with other parents to voice their opinions but here he was interrupted, assaulted, and arrested.
