District apologizes after teacher bans Trump campaign shirts

WOODSTOCK, Ga. — A Georgia school district has apologized after a teacher told two students that their shirts promoting President Donald Trump's campaign weren't allowed in class.

The apology comes after video circulated online showing a River Ridge High School math teacher telling the students they couldn't wear the "Make America Great Again" shirts, "just like you cannot wear a swastika to school."

The video appears to have been recorded by another student in class who questioned the teacher. The teacher explained that the shirts were inappropriate not because of Trump but because the slogan was used by "the neo-Nazis."

Cherokee County School District spokeswoman Barbara Jacoby says that the teacher's actions were inappropriate and that the students won't face discipline. She says the district can't discuss disciplinary action against a teacher.
