School Administration Shuts Down Kanye-Themed Classroom

Adrian Perez is a fourth-grade teacher at McCabe Elementary School in Mendota, California, and he claims that he wants to be “the Kanye West of teaching.” To that end, Perez, a huge Kanye West fan, spent months decorating his classroom with Kanye-themed artifacts. Talking to Team Kanye Daily, Perez described the way he used things like the Graduation bear and the Yeezus artwork in his classroom decor:

I painted my room red in honor of MBDTF album. He wore all red outfits during that time period as you know and also because of the Red October shoes. I used the Kanye West mascot bear as part of my decor. I used several songs and lyrics to categorize my classroom into different sections… I felt my idea was innovative. I am sure no other elementary school teacher out there has a Kanye West themed classroom. I like to think outside of the box and I did and this is the result. I am not one to look at Pinterest and copy ideas. I am proud that I was able to create a one of a kind classroom. Kanye has inspired me, and the result is my classroom.

But such a thing was too beautiful to last. And predictably, some stick-in-the-mud school administrator brought forth the idea that maybe the “put my fist in her like the civil rights sign” guy was not the most appropriate teaching tool for nine-year-olds:
