A Georgia high school teacher is on administrative leave after allegedly posting in a message in her classroom that said the Confederate flag is a symbol for marrying your sibling.

According to the Augusta Chronicle, a social media post from a Hephzibah High School students' parent shows the projection that includes a Confederate flag and the statement, “a sticker you put on the back of your pickup truck to announce that you intend to marry your sister. Think of it like a white trash ‘Save The Date’ card.”

It was reportedly used as an example of a story within a story.

The Richmond County School System said the teacher was investigated and placed on paid leave pending review.

The district released the following statement:

“The Richmond County School System is committed to creating a diverse, equitable learning environment for students. The language used in the example was unacceptable and has no place in our classrooms.”
