Teacher who compared Trump slogan to swastika disciplined

Math teacher Lyn Orletsky kicked two students out of her class at River Ridge High School in Georgia on August 31 for wearing Trump t-shirts.

River Ridge High teacher Lyn Orletsky kicked two students out of her class because they were wearing t-shirts with President Trump's Make America Great Again slogan 

A math teacher who kicked two students out of her class for wearing Trump t-shirts has been removed from her classroom. 

River Ridge High School Principal Darrell herring sent a letter home to parents last Friday, saying Lyn Oletsky would not longer be teaching 'effective immediately'. 

The school is assigning a substitute to take over the class while they search for a permanent teacher to take over the class. 

It's unclear if Oletsky was fired or if she was assigned a different job within the school district. 

The incident happened on August 31, when two of her students came to class wearing 'Make America Great Again' t-shirts.

Turning Point News obtained footage showing Oletsky telling the students to turn their shirts inside out. 

'Just like you cannot wear a swastika to school... you cannot wear Make America Great Again like that,' she said in the footage.

Cherokee County School District spokeswoman Barbara Jacoby said the teacher was 'wrong' to have made the comments.  

The school said Friday that Orletsky will no longer be teaching the class, but did not say whether she was fired

'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,' Jacoby said.

'The teacher additionally - and inappropriately - shared her personal opinion about the campaign slogan during class.'  

The school principal immediately apologized to the students and the families. 

The school said it couldn't comment on disciplinary action against a teacher but said the students would not be punished. 

Orletsky is being abused on social media and online since the footage emerged. 

She has also been inundated with poor ratings on ratemyteachers.com.

'Fascist who wouldn't let her students wear tshirts supporting President Trump,' one comment read.

Another said: 'Stop teaching this filth and clean up these schools.'
