Sacramento high school investigating after teacher displayed Nazi flag in classroom
A high school in suburban Sacramento, Calif., says it has launched a “full investigation” after a teacher reportedly displayed the Nazi flag in the classroom during a lesson.
San Juan Unified School District wrote in a statement that a teacher at Rio Americano High School had put up several German flags, including the Nazi regime’s swastika flag.
“The Nazi flag is a long-standing symbol of hate and does not represent the culture and values of our school or our district. The symbolism of these flags is deplorable and we denounce it — hate has no place at our schools,” the district said.
A full investigation is currently underway as officials seek to determine why the teacher “thought the flags were appropriate to use.”
