Teacher Tosses Student’s Mexican Flag In Trash

Item: Idaho student says teacher tossed his Mexican flag in trash/Idaho Statesman

More Info: A high school student in Rupert, Idaho, says he may file a lawsuit against a physical education teacher who took a Mexican flag he had brought for Cinco de Mayo and put it in the garbage. Clint Straatman denies Froylan Camelo's version of events but said he took the flag Monday because "white kids" might have hurt the 16-year-old. He said he put it in a garbage can because he had no place else to keep it.

Question: What do you think of the teacher's actions?
