Georgia teacher placed on leave over description of Confederate flag

A Georgia high school teacher was put on administrative leave over her description of the Confederate flag, The Augusta Chronicle reports.


At Hephzibah High School, a teacher reportedly displayed a picture with a Confederate flag and a description of what the flag meant.

“A sticker you put on the back of your pickup truck to announce that you intend to marry your sister," the description read. "Think of it like a white trash ‘Save The Date’ card.”

The Richmond County School System opened an investigation after a picture of the projection was posted to Facebook.

In a statement, the school district said, "The Richmond County School System is committed to creating a diverse, equitable learning environment for students."

“The language used in the example was unacceptable and has no place in our classrooms.”
