Georgia School District Apologizes

Sep 5, 2017

The superintendent for a Georgia school district apologized to students who were told by a math teacher to turn they “Make America Great Again” shirts inside out. A spokesman for the district said that students are not in violation of the districts dress code. “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,” said the spokesman for the district. Last week a high school math teacher told students that the “Make America Great Again” slogan was linked to neo-Nazis. She told them to leave the classroom. The incident was caught on video by a conservative student. The district did not say if the teacher would be reprimanded.
