Teacher on leave for stomping on American flag in front of class – three times!
CHAPIN, SC (WIS) –
At least one parent calls the actions of a Chapin High School English teacher disrespectful and unpatriotic.
The Lexington-Richland District 5 teacher is accused of throwing down the American flag and stomping on it in front of his honors English classes.
When Michael Copeland overheard his teenager talking about what her honors II English teacher did with the flag in their classroom, he pressed for details.
“He drew a couple of symbols, like one of them was a cross, and he said, ‘What does this represent,’ and everybody said, ‘Christianity,'” said Copeland.
