Here’s another gem from Libs of TikTok. We’ll give this teacher one thing … she doesn’t have the crazy eyes that every other teacher we see on TikTok seems to share. She also speaks softly, although she admits she teaches in a very conservative state, so she’s probably used to whispering so she’s not carted off the prison for saying “gay.” It says enough that she considers her little pride flag the most important part of her classroom, but listen to the very end — if any of her students have a problem with it, they can find another teacher. She’s created a safe space for learning, and that’s what’s critical.

I'm old enough to remember when reading and arithmatic were the most important parts of a classroom.

I remember when the American flag was enough to make people feel safe and accepted and cared for.

Remember when New York Times editorial board member and MSNBC contributor Mara Gay said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that the “dozens of Americans flags” she saw on a recent visit to Long Island were “just disturbing”? To her, the message was clear: “This is my country. This is not your country. I own this.”

"If a student has a problem with it, then they can find a different teacher." How is this inclusive of a diversity of viewpoints? Also, how does this teacher propose that would work? Also, why is a flag (of any kind) the most important part of a classroom?

The periodic table, the multiplication and division tables, and the reading charts should be the most important things in the classroom.

Education ought to be the most important part of your classroom.

A persons sexuality IS the most important part of learning. Right?

If your children need to see a flag to know you care about them, you shouldn't be a teacher.

They are “loved here”… like they’re not loved at home? Teach them how to read, write and do math. That’s way more helpful and lasts a lifetime.

You are a teacher. Stop being their friend. I understand it’s a positive to have a good relationship with your students, but your first priority is to teach. Yes, you can make a difference, by equipping them with the tools to be good people.

This is all about her and nothing to do with students.

If she lives in a very conservative state, why haven’t the police come to her classroom and arrested her? There must be some law against having a little pride flag hanging up … although we’d note it’s not a progressive pride flag and doesn’t represent transgender kids, black and brown kids, intersex kids, and kids who are sex workers. Just a standard pride flag is pretty bigoted.
