A South Carolina teacher might lose his job after allegations that he stomped on the American flag in front of his honors English class.
Scott Compton repeated the action in three classes over the course of the day at Chapin High School, according to WIS-TV. Compton was attempting to show that America is an “inspirational idea” while the physical flag is just a piece of cloth.
Compton’s attorney, Darryl D. Smalls, said that the teacher had only positive things to say about the country and was using the action to demonstrate that America is greater than the “material objects that represent it.”
“He meant no intentional disrespect to those men and women who served our country or to America itself,” Smalls wrote in a release to WIS-TV, adding that several of Compton’s family members served in the armed forces.
