Lizeth Villanueva is a 13-year-old seventh-grader at Anthony Aguirre Junior High School, in Channelview and was given a fake award named “Most like to be a terrorist.”

I really don’t even know where to begin with this? What was going through the teacher’s mind when making up these fake awards for the students? And not to be forgotten there were other awards given out such as “most likely to become homeless” and “most likely to cry for every little thing.”

“She said, ‘Mostly likely become a terrorist,’ and said my name and gave me this,” Villanueva told KPRC. “It was supposed to be a joke.”
The school district has apologized and said, “Channelview ISD would like to assure all students, parents and community members that these award statements and ideals are not representative of the district’s vision, mission and educational goals for our students.”
And the teacher has been disciplined for the actions, however there’s no comment as to what the discipline was.
