A parent has filed an ethical complaint against a teacher who allegedly wrote a condescending remark about Democrats on her classroom whiteboard.

The parent, Mary Gilbert, told the Lexington Herald-Leader that she thinks the teacher, Kendra Baker, wrote the comments "You can't be a Democrat & go to heaven" to bully her daughter.

Gilbert said she filed her complaint with the state Education Professional Standards Board, the agency that issues credentials to teachers.

She said the teacher wrote the comments shortly after her daughter expressed admiration for President Obama.

Gilbert said she didn't believe Baker's explanation that she put it on her board to share with a colleague and forgot to erase it.

The newspaper said it attempted to reach Baker for comment, but was unsuccessful.
