Sounds like this teacher lacks the mental faculties to be a teacher.

Acts more like a screecher then a teacher.

Maybe it's the other way around. You lack certain faculties: reason and logic and common sense and that sets you up to be a successful teacher in today's environment.

Strange that hats violate the dress code but it didn't seem to be the issue. Calling a student a name time to terminate the teacher.

It speaks volumes to see how easily triggered our "educators" are.

Parents still use those liberal, failed public schools?

Private or home school is the only way to go...

Public schools are rotting the brains of our children and teaching them how to lie, steal and join thug thugster gangsta gangs.

Abolish public education. Nothing wrong with realizing some kids aren't cut out for academics: send them to learn a trade, work the farms or join the military. All 3 are excellent and respectable choices!

Any child with basic solid math & grammar along with a trade skill set could make it in the world today. With BS degree's in African studies & Liberal Arts just doesn't bring home the bacon.

I don't see why it was necessary for the teacher to go into a ramble about "falling in line", if it's against the rules to wear a hat in the classroom it should have been a simple case of telling him to remove the cap or get detention / be sent to the principles office. The fact the teacher instead chose to move the whole class after the kid stating he wishes to stay and learn is extremely immature, as if he's saying he wont teach anyone unless they align with his political beliefs. The truly sad part is the entire class sides with this teacher and they think they're truly wise and enlightened for picking on someone who has the balls to express their support for the president of the nation they live in.


Did you see the teacher? Clearly he orders extra soy in his latte.

It's the teacher's job to be the adult. Evacuate the class over a cap? Very immature. I'd put the teacher in time-out until next year.

My Environmental Science class was evacuated during my Junior year because we were right next to the lab and after I turned my test in, I farted from one end of the room to the other and the teacher thought there was a methane gas leak coming from the lab. I got detention for a week and had to do a 1,000 word essay on methane gas after my buddies gave me a high five and Mrs. Pratt realized it was me and not the lab.

Teacher says We have a no hat rule here. Then a few seconds into it he says 'That's part of the nature of a high school, we have to constantly bend rules.

Teacher then proceeds near end to call the student an Asshole.

Who's really the adult here? I didn't see him bending the rule for that kid for what was left of an hour in that class; wouldn't have hurt the teacher to let it go and deal with the kid after class instead.

You understand there was a dress code right?, the little darling was trolling right?
I don't think the teacher should of cleared the class though..should of sent the kid into the hallway so he could troll the walls and lockers..probably not as much fun for the little patriot

Holy #.

Go to school to learn, stop trying to stir # up.

Teachers need to stop over reacting and this kid needs to understand that he isnt above the rules. He was trying to get that teacher and the school in a gotcha moment. It's BS.


Except it did exactly what the kid wanted it to do... get a bunch of righties whining and claiming victimhood for ridiculous reasons yet again. Just look at this thread. Pathetic.
Thanks for seeing past it.


Nobody is claiming victimhood. Fail again.

I remember one time my brother wore a Budweiser shirt to high school. (My parents ran a bar, and the beer distributor gave him a free shirt). Was just the old fashioned Budweiser red bow-tie looking logo. Nothing provocative.

My brother got suspended for wearing the shirt and came home. My Mom went back to the school and raised Holy Hell with the principal (this was waaaayyy before the ridiculousness we have today, like 1978).

Needless to say, the principal apologized, and my brother was re-instated. I'm pretty sure he kept wearing the shirt, too.

I agree with some of the other comments; Where can I order a MAGA hat, just to trigger people?


I had a holographic shirt that had these two hand signs (it was 1997 and emojis weren't heard of yet).



As I'd move, the hologram would show the finger going into the other hand. I wore it to school once and the teachers made me turn it inside out. End of story. I could understand your mom raising hell in the 70's though since shirts like that or the beer shirt weren't against the rules and definitely don't qualify for suspension.

I am just tired of parents dragging their kids into political fights.

David Hogg and the anti gun student walk outs. The illegal alien student walkouts, pro second amendment student walk outs, and regular activism like this in situations where it is highly inappropriate, enough is enough.

We need to let our kids be kids and we need to figure put this mess ourselves. Parents who use their kids as pawns, now matter how much I may agree with the message, are doing a disservice to their kids.


There were pro 2nd walk outs?

Even political discussions are supposed to be neutral but in some classes like government there can be viewpoints but both parties viewpoints are supposed to be represented. Now, in school they cannot parrot the crap the media spews, PBS news actually parallels the rules of schools usually with real facts and both parties represented in a civil manner.


So when I looked back at my school days we had clubs that were political, during campaigns people were active to their political beliefs, we had gun clubs, outside of vulgar remarks there was no limits on wear...Is MAGA vulgar?

Is today better as we keep narrowing everything down to some bland form of interaction?


Their school policy states that nobody is allowed to wear a hat in class. Does someone wearing a MAGA hat have special priviledges? No.

In our local school they have rules against promoting one party of politics, but the teachers break the rules and send home stuff to parents promoting Democrats because with Democrats in office school teachers get more raises and higher increases in their future pensions and benefits. A teacher working nine months should not make as much as a person working in a mine where risk of health problems is way higher. A teacher here with twenty years in retires with a high wage and upon retirement gets more retirement benefits and better insurance than almost every job around here. That is not socialism, they want more and more while because of their longevity and retirement the new teachers wind up part time and even full timers do not get a very good starting wage for their first seven or eight years. We got problems.

And then some in our society wonder what is wrong. You see some of the problem, thankfully.


Not anymore. I haven't wondered what was wrong in a decade. It's been apparent forever it seems. My cousin is a gleaming example. She bought her kid an Xbox and a tv so he would stay out of her hair, and she lets him do what he wants as long as he's not bugging her. When he was 12, he started smoking cigarettes and was asking another cousin of his (on his mom's side) for weed. He's a trashy little guy, just like his mom. She went by the wayside back in 2000 when my Uncle died. Now I see her once a year (my grandma's alcohol and drug free Christmas Party) and as soon as she gets her gifts from my grandma, she opens it/them and hightails it to her mom's side for their Christmas Party where she can get stoned and wasted. She's only 37 but looks like she's in her 50's. Her mom looks older than my 92 year old grandma.

Problem is, people don't care to take time with their kids.

I don't agree with you.
Let me tell you what I feel is proper adult behavior...

1.The teacher explains the "No hat" policy of the school, then asks for it to be removed.
2. When the student refuses, the teacher continues with the classroom lessons so as not to disrupt the entire class.
3. When the bell rings he tells the student he's getting an infraction and to go see the principal.
4. The teacher calls the front office and leaves a message for the principal explaining the incident.
5. That's all he can do. It's up to the school to contact the kid's parents and discuss the situation and or any disciplinary action the school is taking. Such as, he will not be admitted onto school grounds if he continues to use a hat.

We have a couple of issues here. The teacher should have left it at "remove your hat...period, but he said that the hat was a good example of why they have a no hat rule, bad choice of words there. Later it was called raciest, which is untrue.




In our local school they have rules against promoting one party of politics, but the teachers break the rules and send home stuff to parents promoting Democrats because with Democrats in office school teachers get more raises and higher increases in their future pensions and benefits. A teacher working nine months should not make as much as a person working in a mine where risk of health problems is way higher.

That is not socialism, they want more and more while because of their longevity and retirement the new teachers wind up part time and even full timers do not get a very good starting wage for their first seven or eight years. We got problems.


School rules are funny. I'm a senior manager of an adult school and my instructors are required to wear a collared shirt, long pants, can wear a hat, but I have the right to say that something is inappropriate as a manager too. My students have it more relaxed, but once again I can say what is inappropriate. As example wearing open toe shoes is inappropriate for the school for either instructors and students.

In schools they follow some rules, bend other, and still others they ignore. A friend of mind is a very good sub, and he was barred from one district because they saw him as too much trouble because he enforced the rules. He told them to change the rules then... Such as no phone use in the classroom, and all the kids were on their phones. In an adult school during a lecture if I see someone on their phone longer than a min I'm like "put up the phone"... and I wait with my lecture until they do.

The question here is do any other student wear any kind of hat that the rules are ignored? If not then the only message to the student is "take your hat off" end if discussion. It seems the discussion went down the path that of the MAGA was the reason and not so much the hat rule. I would need to ask what if the kid wore a MAGA shirt then? Or a shirt that said something like "I respect my President!" Would that be offensive or racist?

You are right, teachers can talk all day about liberal political ideals and both my kids hear it all the time from teachers while the conservative side is viewed as wrong or even worst a level of racism. The bottom line is enforce all rules or change rules
