(Natural News) A middle school American History teacher has been forced to retire after displaying the confederate flag during a civil war history lesson. Woody Hart, the 70-year old instructor at Suttle Middle School in Rancho Cordova, California, was reportedly forced by the Board of Education to resign from his duties. Hart displayed a Confederate Flag on one side of the classroom and a Union flag on the opposite side. Students in the classroom were each assigned to a side, comprising the armies for reenactment.

It's unjust that Hart was practically terminated for displaying the Confederate Flag during a related history lesson. The students' textbooks also showed the same flag, but the school hasn't announced any plans to pull the textbooks. Hart last drew a complaint in November for discussing how poorly blacks were historically treated during segregation. The topic generated a complaint from a black family whose child felt embarrassed.
