A Georgia school region director has apologized to understudies who were told by their secondary school math instructor they couldn’t wear their “Make America Great Again” shirts in her classroom.
“Her activities weren’t right, as the ‘Make America Great Again’ shirts worn by the understudies are not an infringement of our School District clothing standard,” Cherokee County Schools representative Barbara Jacoby told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution in a messaged articulation.
The River Ridge High School math instructor was caught on video Thursday telling two understudies their President Trump attire was not adequate garments on the grounds that the battle motto has been connected to neo-Nazis in the wake of the brutality in Charlottesville, Va.
Georgia state administrators like Rep. Earl Ehrhart told the AJC the episode was “stunning,” while Rep. John Carson said the instructor’s conduct was contemptible. Rep. Mandi Ballinger included that she was happy the understudies’ entitlement to free discourse had been maintained with the school’s reaction to the circumstance.
The understudies won’t confront disciplinary activity yet the area would not remark on whether the educator would be decried, Jacoby proceeded.
“Director of Schools Dr. Brian V. Hightower is profoundly sad that this episode occurred in one of our schools,” Jacoby said. “It doesn’t mirror his desire that all understudies be dealt with similarly and deferentially by our workers.”
