The Asylum is being run by the inmates........
"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
This turns my stomach. Sounds like the parents handled it better than I could or would have. The teacher needs to apologize to more than just the student.
Don't tread on me or mine.
I am comfortable laying on a rock in the sun; bothering no one. If you choose to ignore the above statement, you will wish all you had to do, is deal with a snake.
That is disturbing on so many levels!!! If that happened to my kid, I'd be on every news channel telling everyone that would listen. I'd be in the school superintendant's office, the county board of supervisors / town council, my kid would no longer be in that teacher's class, and I'd demand a public apology to not only my kid, but to every American. And these people are suposed to be teaching our kids? Be afraid of what it is they are teaching them.

Definitely sickening, but this is posted in the wrong area.

Oh what the !
Again! Offensive? What .
Those . How stupid do you have to see the American flag as offensive? Though it seems that it was the phrase God Bless America that the teacher found offensive. Hmph. What's next? Cash is offensive because it says "In God we trust"?
Sorry about that. Rant off. The above post was censored for your protection.

I am thankful I have no kids of school age. I would have to home school for sure.
Public school teachers are way, way off the reservation and have been for at least the last 12 years or more. And they keep getting worse year by year!
We currently live in a small rural community where the teachers are not nearly as psychotic. Our daughter and husband moved from the suburbs to live here so our 8 year old granddaughter won't be subjected to the whims of insane lunatic liberal teachers who's role is indoctrination, not education. They moved here to avoid being forced into home schooling. But it's an option they hold out in case teachers here start to show the signs of lunacy.
Not to mention all the teachers molesting and having sex with our kids! I swear, it seems like the number one requirement to be a public school teacher is not a teaching degree... but to be amoral first, teaching degree second.
I'm afraid if I ever met someone who claims to be a teacher at some social event in a major metro city these days, I might puke on their shoes.
No really, I'm serious... I can hardly stomach what I hear going on in schools today.

One of the advantages of being in my seventies is I'll not likely have to watch where this is going.
One of the advantages of living in SWVA is that it's not that bad here, yet. The schools still give out DAR and other organizations' citizenship awards/scholarships. Towns get plastered w/ flags on holidays like the 4th, Veterans' day, etc.
As for the younger members of the list, good luck, do the right thing, turn this Ca. nonsense around!
I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.
I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.

"However, Hathaway said her daughter has yet to receive an apology – and in fact – the teacher told the girl that she should not have gotten her parents involved in the matter."
And this would have sent me over the edge. A teacher should not DARE tell a child to not tell their parents ANYTHING!!! That is worse in my eyes than the issue with the picture. It's like "snitches get stitches" for the classroom. These types of teachers need to grow up and take some responsibility. They are our kids not yours. I'm not big on clothing with the flag on it, outside of uniforms. But I think I would be buying some flag shirts top send my kids to school in.
I prefer to live dangerously free than safely caged!

I, too, would not have simply rolled over once the principal "spoke with" the teacher. Fearing "gang 'colors'" is one thing; fearing an uprising is one thing. But I can't, for the life of me, imagine what was going through that teacher's mind when seeking to jump on that child for her imagined infraction. When tromping on rights and children goes as far as that, to call one's own country and one's own flag 'bad' in front of the children, and to call the child 'bad' who dared to disagree, then it's clear such a person has no place being anywhere near a position of responsibility for educating children.
There are educators worthy of the name. There are many hundreds of thousands of them. Sadly, there is a good percentage of them who can't find righteousness or worth with a map and a light.
It is inspiring, though, to see that the child in question recognized immediately who the teacher and student were with the question put to her. She knew, as did her parents. I doubt the teacher does, even after the "scolding" (or whatever was done, if anything) the teacher received. Therein lies some reason for hope, pitiful the rest of it is.

If I gave a crap about what you think about my guns.....it was early this morning and I already flushed it!
Art teacher should be locked into a Pillory.....and tomatoes for everyone.....take a pix.....it's art.........putz.
Government's first duty is to protect the people, not run their lives.
If political correctness gets involved in this the flag will be doomed at that school.
