Cherokee County School District has released a statement about the t-shirt incident:
On behalf of the Superintendent, this message is to provide you with more information about a story currently circulating in the media and on social media regarding an incident at one of our high schools.
In this regard, a River Ridge High School math teacher on Thursday, Aug. 31, 2017 erroneously told two students their shirts with campaign slogans were not permitted in class. 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. The teacher additionally and inappropriately shared her personal opinion about the campaign slogan during class.
The schools Principal immediately met with and apologized to these students and their families. Superintendent of Schools Dr. Brian V. Hightower is deeply sorry that this incident happened in one of our schools; it does not reflect his expectation that all students be treated equally and respectfully by our employees.
While we cannot discuss disciplinary action against a teacher, we can assure you that the students face no disciplinary action. The Superintendent also is instructing all Principals to meet with their teachers and staff to review the dress code and remind them that their political opinions should not be shared with students.
As people across the country are being encouraged by some social media sites to contact the school, we anticipate a potentially high call volume over the next week. If possible, please avoid calling the front office during this time, and instead email the person you are trying to reach; emails are published on the school website at http://cherokeek12.net/riverridgehs/. A plan is in place to ensure staff will continue to be able to make outgoing calls without issues.
Thank you for entrusting us with your children each day. We care about them and their future success!

I believe, Georgia.
For someone that is supposed to be an educator, they are lacking education. If that teacher can’t understand the basics, how will they teach things more complicated?
The school's Principal should require the TEACHER to apologize to the students as a condition of continued employment.
Absolutely agree. If not, fire her.
No not even close, Nazis in the real sense would have had public school teachers tortured or even just killed for questioning them. I can’t believe how so much of the country has turned into big crybabies just because their side didn’t win.
Who interviewed this teacher and decided she was fit to teach in that school? Did no one ever observe her teaching? Every school should have cameras in the classroom, to either protect or indict the teachers.
Well, at least she isn’t leading the local antifa movement / S
Daily Mail published the school’s name, location, phone# teachers name and her pic.....he he he
Anyone who objects to Make America Great Again should not be teaching school children in this country.
That Superintendent and his staff faced a real crisis and slew the dragon.
The meme that all Trump supporters are neo-nazis will be a bridge too far for the Left.
They will back off after they get clobbered in the polls again.
Or not, maybe they will double down. Either way, we win.
I cant believe how so much of the country has turned into big crybabies just because their side didnt win.
They are now Crybullies.

The school system superintendent has reprimanded the teacher and says the students can wear the shirts.
The Teacher should be fired.
