The flag that may no longer be seen

A Folsom teacher accused of “racially insensitive behavior” has retired, the Folsom Cordova Unified School District said at a board meeting Thursday night.

Sutter Middle School teacher Woody Hart, who has been with the district since 1999, has come under fire twice since November.

After a Confederate flag was found hanging in his classroom Tuesday night, Hart was placed on paid administrative leave Wednesday.

“We recognize that regardless of context, to many of our students, families, and staff, the Confederate flag is a racist symbol of hate,” the school district said in a statement Wednesday.

The flag was hanging in a classroom across from a Civil War Union flag, “potentially in preparation of a history activity,” the district said. It was taken down before class began Wednesday.

"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," Hart's student Ana Kneisley said.

Kneisley pointed out the Confederate flag is in her text book and said the hanging flags were part of a lesson, where students were members of the two armies.

"I actually very much appreciated the way he taught history," Kneisley said. "I felt that we were getting more involved than what our other classes did."

Just to point out the obvious... Liberals declare a 'certain something' racist. At first they aren't paid any attention. Liberals keep repeating their message that the 'certain something' is racist. After awhile some people begin to notice what they're saying and start to believe them. A while latter more people believe it and it becomes socially unacceptable to display the 'certain something'. A short while later it becomes illegal to display the 'certain something'. Given how liberals have declared the American flag racist, how long before it becomes illegal to display the American flag? Think about it.

Actually, this could have and should have been a great teaching moment. The "Confederate flag" is most likely the "Confederate BATTLE flag," which is not the same thing as the flag that represents the entire CSA.

Certainly the Confederate States of America were formed mostly to keep slavery in their states, but that should be discussed and examined in a history class.

You cannot have education or discussions where people are repeatedly "offended" by history and therefore choose to neither learn the actual history, or learn from history.

Lincoln should have repatriated all Africans back to Africa. Would have save a lot of angst about history.

Good teachers are being penalized for actually making learning interesting and in many cases it is the incompetent teachers who instigate the witch hunt because they do not like to look like the incompetents they are.
