BALLSTON SPA, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Parents, teachers and students in Ballston Spa are upset after things got ugly with a guest speaker during an assembly on Wednesday.
Students said they were disrespected, and the speaker was asked to leave.
She told NEWS10 ABC she wasn’t being disrespectful. She didn’t know the student was disabled and would have never asked the student to leave if she did.
Sales said she tried to apologize.
“I said, ‘I want to go to her right now and apologize. Can you take me to her?’” Sales said. “The assistant principal and the principal refused to let me do that. And I think because of mismanagement by the school and the administration that I was not able to deliver the message that I wanted to.”
Jensen said she’s proud of her students.
