A South Carolina high school English teacher is on administrative leave after reportedly throwing an American flag on the floor and stomping on it.

This came to light when a student related to her father what occurred in her Honors English class taught by Scott Compton.

Compton allegedly drew several symbols on the board and asked the class what each meant. Michael Copeland, father of the student, related what he was told happened next.

“Then he proceeds to take down the American flag, and said, ‘This is a symbol, but it’s only a piece of cloth. It doesn’t mean anything,’ and then he throws it down on the floor and then stomps on it, repeatedly,” Copeland said.

“I asked what was he trying to get, the point across? And she said, ‘I don’t know,’ and he said, his explanation was there would be no consequences, it’s just a piece of cloth that doesn’t mean anything.”

Compton allegedly repeated this is two additional classes that day.

As reported by The Daily Caller, “According to FITSNews, a South Carolina-based conservative news and entertain website, people in the Chapin High community describe Compton a ‘good teacher’ who is ‘very liberal’ and ‘wears it on his sleeve in the classroom.’”
