A Georgia high school teacher has been forced to delete her social media accounts this week after she was slammed for kicking two students out of her class for wearing “Make America Great Again” shirts.
Last Thursday, at River Ridge High School in Cherokee County, math teacher Lyn Orletsky told two students who were rocking the Trump-slogan shirts that they couldn’t wear them in her classroom, comparing them to Nazi paraphernalia.
“Just like you cannot wear a swastika to school… you cannot wear Make America Great Again like that,” she said, in video footage obtained by Turning Point News.
Cherokee County School District Barbara Jacoby said the teacher was “wrong” to have made the comments and that MAGA shirts are well within the school’s dress code.
“Her actions were wrong, as the “Make America Great Again” shirts worn by the students are not a violation of our school district dress code,” Jacoby confirmed.
“The teacher additionally – and inappropriately – shared her personal opinion about the campaign slogan during class.”
The school has apologized to parents and students, saying disciplinary action for the teacher is in the works.
Orletsky is taking a beating on social media.
“Fascist who wouldn’t let her students wear t-shirts supporting President Trump,” one comment read.
Another said: “Stop teaching this filth and clean up these schools.”
Another fiery commenter wrote: “Dear Madam, Thank you SO very much for teaching our kids the meaning of the words intolerance, capriciousness, and dogma.”
Still, another said: “You should never be allowed to teach impressionable young adults, you are everything that is wrong with this country.”
