A few months ago, a teacher was caught on camera telling students they had to remove their Trump t-shirts in class. She has now resigned.

Teacher who told students to remove Trump shirt resigns
A Cherokee County high school math teacher embroiled in a controversy has tendered her resignation to the school board.
Lyn Orletsky’s resignation is on the agenda set for 7 p.m. Thursday.
She was put on administrative leave in September, shortly after a video of her request that two students wearing “Make America Great Again” T-shirts turn them inside out, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution previously reported.
She said she was motivated to ask the students to remove the slogan because it had been used by neo-Nazis during the violent rally in Charlottesville, Va.
Orletsky released a statement Wednesday, saying she is fearful for her life.
“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,” Orletsky said. “While in hindsight I would have handled the situation differently, the outcry over this incident has been disproportionate to the event itself.”
Can you even imagine a teacher doing this while Obama was president? It would have been a national story.
