California Teacher Canned for Displaying Confederate Flag while Teaching Civil War

In what could be the worst example of liberal political correctness gone too far, a 70-year-old history teacher at the Suttle Middle School of the Folsom Cordova United School District, claims he was urged to retire for using a Confederate battle flag as a part of his history lesson. On the day of the lesson, Woody Hart placed a Union flag and a Confederate battle flag on opposite ends of the classroom. The students were then randomly assigned to a side as part of the lesson. A student that witnessed this applauded the teacher and said she felt more involved and more interested in the lesson due to the way Hart taught:

“We just came in and we saw the Union Flag on one side of the room and the Confederate Flag on the other side of the room. I actually very much appreciated the way he taught history, I felt that we were getting more involved than what our other classes did.” – Ana Kneisely (student)

Kneisely also added that she was confused as to why he would be punished for teaching this way as the text books they are taught from use the same flags in the same way. The school district however feels that no student in 2017 should have to see that flag, regardless if it’s a part of history or not. One might wonder how you learn from history if you’ve never learned it?

“We recognize that regardless of context, to many of our students, families, and staff, the Confederate flag is a racist symbol of hate. Although this matter is under investigation, it is important to reiterate: Any employee who is found to engage in behavior that creates an unsafe environment for students will face full consequences, including the possibility of initiating termination proceedings. – Deborah Bettencourt (superintendent)

There is definitely more to this story than this. Last year, the parents of the sole African-American student in this class complained about Hart after Hart tried to teach how poorly African-American’s were treated in the south. Hart was trying to promote equality for blacks by showing the reason why it was necessary, however, apparently this family gets offended when a White man tries to teach history.

As you can see in the above video, almost all parents rallied behind the man. Students spoke about how great of a teacher he was, and how he inspired them to learn. The video ends when they finally found one moonbat liberal parent, who applauds the decision and thinks you should get rid of teachers that do a great job.

How do you feel?

  1. How do we expect our children to learn the real history of any country if we don’t give them the truths and visual items used at the time. What are museums but evidence of our past.
    People, your children absolutely need to learn what really happened in this Country and this teacher was doing an excellent job of attempting to help your children learn. Realize how involved the students were in the learning process. There are some teachers who are trying to educate your children – don’t stop them or your children will grow up to be a bunch of know-nothings and absolutely destroying the Country, you with it.

  2. Mary M: Let’s hope those folks who don’t feel that the children should have to look at a Confederate Flag in 2017 never move East. Everywhere in the East you can’t go anywhere without seeing that flag. It is a part of the US’s history and will forever remain a part of history, regardless of who decides that it shouldn’t be.
