A teacher in a Chicago high school allegedly told a Latino student to “go back to your country” when she didn’t want to stand for the national anthem.
During an assembly some students decided that they didn’t want to stand for the national anthem and this upset a teacher. The students held a sit-in to protest the teacher.
Students say that the student who was told to “go back to your country” is a U.S. citizen. She didn’t stand for the anthem, a teacher asked her if her legs were broken. She said they weren’t and that’s what the teacher uttered the line.
Chicago Public Schools won’t say if the teacher has been disciplined.
