    Flag-stomping teacher has no regrets, wants student punished

    Lee Francis, a first year history teacher at Massey Hill Classical High School in Fayetteville, has been placed on administrative leave while the school district investigates the incident.

    “Do I regret what I did? Absolutely not,” Mr. Francis told me in an exclusive telephone interview. “Would I do it again? All I can say is I did it and I stand by it.”

    He said the student who snapped the photo of the flag desecration “broke the law.”

    “I believe that child does need to be punished in some way – absolutely,” he said. “I can’t take a picture of them and in turn they cannot do the same of me.”

    He said the student got up from his desk, took the desecrated flag and left the classroom.

    “That was not the goal, that was not the point of the lesson,” he said. “For me, it was about the First Amendment, teaching about the Bill of Rights, the beginning of what we call America.”

    So the guy feels that he has a right to stomp on the flag but in turn wants the kid that snapped the pic to be punished? How the fuck is that not hypocrisy?

    I feel he has a right to do it--it's stupid--but it doesn't bother me

    his employer might have problems with it

    and he sounds like a fag with the crying that the kid who took a picture of him should get in shit over it

    Why can't teachers just stick to the lesson plan without having to throw in their agenda or fuck their students?

    This ^. A few semesters ago in college I had a history professor that constantly tried to shove his political beliefs down our throats he often got off topic with his far left ramblings. He was a self hating white dude that shit on whites when ever he could. Had an English profesour that was dicking a student as well.

    Oh what a silly twat. Freedom of expression does not mean freedom from consequences. Arrest or Jail...heck no. I'll defend his right to stomp on any flag. But an employer has the right to say, yeah while you are on our clock or are representing us we have a right to tsk tsk your behaviour if it violates our code of conduct and we reserve the right to impose disciplinary action which may include termination. I wonder if he thinks all whistle blowers should be punished unless it is about something he got caught doing.

    One has to wonder how butt hurt this "teacher" would have been if a student or another teacher had stepped on a gay pride flag?

    Everyone has the right to free expression.
    Stomp on all the flags you want AT HOME.
    When you're teaching a classroom full of impressionable teens, keep it to the curriculum

    Just because something is within your legal right to do, doesn't make it right to do it.
