Math teacher Ms Lyn Orletsky rose to US-wide fame a month ago when she asked two students in her class to either take off the Make America Great Again T-shirts or leave her class

The River Ridge High School teacher afterwards tried to salvage the situation by stating that she had given the two students the choice to either put on the T-shirts backwards or leave class, but by then the damage was done. The school immediately put her on leave after the incident and made sure the local press was informed that the students weren’t in trouble.

The spokeswoman for Cherokee County Schools, Ms Barbara Jacoby did confirm that 1 November would be Ms Orletsky’s last day.

We’re still at a loss for words of trying to explain why a math teacher feels that she needed to point out to anyone what they can or can’t put in their T-shirt in a classroom.

Ms Orletsky, who tried many times to salvage the situation and get herself reinstated, most recently in a 15 September interview where she claims once again that all this was due to the events in Charlottesville, put out a statement explaining her decision today: “After attacks on my character and threats on my life, I have made the decision to resign from my teaching position at River Ridge High School. While in hindsight I would have handled the situation differently, the outcry over this incident has been disproportionate to the event itself.”

She had told the students that wearing the slogan, made popular by President Donald Trump during his election campaign, was like wearing a swastika.

A week after the events, State Senator Michael Williams (Republican, Cumming) had organized a protest to demand that the school board fire Ms Orletsky.

Will schools have uniforms after /pol/ wins, or is it one of the things they're libertarian about?

Schools have a dress code and teachers can use their judgment for what is appropriate. However, singling out a political shirt is inappropriate. Look how many faggots wear Che Guivera shirts ironically
