Geography teacher Eric Hamlin, was placed on leave by the principal Carmody Middle School in Colorado for refusing to take down several flags from other countries in his classroom:
Eric Hamlin said the flags were part of a world geography lesson plan at Carmody Middle School and refused to take them down. The school's principal escorted Hamlin out of class Wednesday morning after he refused to remove the flags of China and Mexico.
The school district placed him on administrative leave for insubordination, citing a Colorado law that makes it illegal to display foreign flags permanently in schools.
