“The correct answer was C, that tattoos were a symbol of beauty and courage. Not A, that tats are a sign of being a criminal,” Leal added.
“For my part in this, allow me to apologize. I just want for our kids to get as good an education as they can get,” she said.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOWCONTINUE READING BELOWRecommended Videos
