Mother says teachers actions forced her daughter to leave school

A valley mom says she pulled her daughter out of school because she didn't like what was going on in the classroom.

She blames the teacher, the same one accused of showing a profane video.

Mandy Wilson pulled her daughter out of West Limestone High School nearly 2 years ago.

Mandy says she didn't agree with the way Steve White talked to his students.

"He says that he hates teaching. He hates being there. He doesn't like the students. He calls them immature, idiots, stupid. I feel teachers should not address a class like that," says Wilson.

When Mandy heard on WAFF 48 News that White had shown a video clip bashing President Bush, she wasn't surprised.

"I think he should be punished for his actions," says Wilson.

We wanted to hear what Steve White had to say about the allegations against him.

We went to his house, rang the doorbell and waited.

No one came to the front door.

There were cars parked in the drive way, but we didn't find anyone at the house.

Meanwhile, Mandy says she's disappointed that a teacher would show such poor judgement.

"The thing he needs to understand is these are our children and we choose what they watch," says Wilson.

Mandy is certain the publicity surrounding White will hurt his chances for state house, that is, if he decides to continue in the race.

"If he won't stand up for our children he won't stand up for us," says Wilson.

White will remain on administrative leave until the investigation is complete.

A decision about his future with the Limestone County School system could come as early as next week.
