Wait, ‘Retired’ For Showing Confederate Flag During Civil War Lesson

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.

Key Takeaways:

  • A 70-year-old middle school teacher in California (of course) suddenly decided to retire after the school district disciplined him for hanging a Confederate flag next to a Union flag in preparation for the day’s Civil War lesson.
  • The Folsom Cordova Unified School District released the following statement about the teacher, Woody Hart: We recognize that regardless of context, to many of our students, families, and staff, the Confederate flag is a racist symbol of hate.
  • The Folsom Cordova Unified School District released the following statement about the teacher, Woody Hart: It is our schools’ responsibility to provide a safe learning environment for all children.

“The district assures that it isn’t interested in stifling the free speech of its teachers but expects them to “do this work using culturally appropriate strategies.””
