RE: Teacher slams patriotic shirts, kicks students out of class
Statement from the school district

http://cherokeek12.net/riverridgehs/2017...-incident/

Quote:Dear Parents,

On behalf of the Superintendent, this message is to provide you with more information about a story currently circulating in the media and on social media regarding an incident at one of our high schools.

In this regard, a River Ridge High School math teacher on Thursday, Aug. 31, 2017 erroneously told two students their shirts with campaign slogans were not permitted in class. Her actions were wrong, as the “Make America Great Again” shirts worn by the students are not a violation of our School District dress code. The teacher additionally — and inappropriately — shared her personal opinion about the campaign slogan during class.

The school’s Principal immediately met with and apologized to these students and their families. Superintendent of Schools Dr. Brian V. Hightower is deeply sorry that this incident happened in one of our schools; it does not reflect his expectation that all students be treated equally and respectfully by our employees.

While we cannot discuss disciplinary action against a teacher, we can assure you that the students face no disciplinary action. The Superintendent also is instructing all Principals to meet with their teachers and staff to review the dress code and remind them that their political opinions should not be shared with students.

As people across the country are being encouraged by some social media sites to contact the school, we anticipate a potentially high call volume over the next week. If possible, please avoid calling the front office during this time, and instead email the person you are trying to reach; emails are published on the school website at http://cherokeek12.net/riverridgehs/. A plan is in place to ensure staff will continue to be able to make outgoing calls without issues.

Thank you for entrusting us with your children each day. We care about them and their future success!

Barbara P. Jacoby

Chief Communications Officer

Cherokee County School District

So it appears the leftist teacher was wrong and if there is justice in the world should face repercussions for violating the school district's harassment and bullying policy.

What's "political" about making America great? Is saying the Pledge of Allegiance political now too?

Seems like a balanced response from the school district. I have taken the tar off of boil and put the feathers back in the pillow. Also, the pitchfork is still firmly on the hook in the garage.

(It's impossible to say if that would have been the response if any of this situation was was reversed, but that's reality of this situation.)

Don't forget wearing a shirt with the American Flag on it.

ONLY if that is policy in this school district. Doesn't seem that it is.

Exactly. I'm almost sure it is. There has even been a supreme court case about it.

The SC ruled that schools can ban anything political that causes a disruption to learning.

I would have simply written them up and not allowed them in class until their parents came with a change of clothes.

So you're just another little petty tyrant like so many of the others. Maybe you should take a stick to them too?

I'm sure you were similarly OUTRAGED!!! about-

Barack.... Hussein..... Obama.... Mmmmm, mmmmm, mmmmmmmm.

And thats a smart policy..... however! not once did she say we don't allow political shirts thus I suspect if it had said "Obama, Change you can believe in" or "I'm with her" the teacher would have been fine.

Depends on the policy does it not?

MAGA isn't necessarily patriotic, having been used as a political slogan it definitely is political, having an American flag t shirt is patriotic. That said, teacher is an idiot, it's clear that they were not breaking any policies set in place by the school district and that she needs to be reprimanded for disrupting the class and costing kids the opportunity to learn.

Cherokee school district? Shouldn't the SJW demand the name of the district be renamed?? You know, offensive?

Some people consider wearing the American Flag disrespectful.

Wearing a shirt that says "Make America Great Again" wouldn't be a political statement except for the fact that Donald Trump used it as his campaign slogan.


As I have said before, this was decided by the Supreme Court. In that case, the students were simply wearing black arm bands in protest of the Vietnam war.

No words. Just an arm band.
