Chapin High Teacher Who Stomped On American Flag To Resign

Posted: Updated:
CHAPIN, SC -

A Chapin High School teacher who was recommended to be fired after stomping an American flag in his classroom has agreed to resign at the end of this school year.

The attorney for teacher Scott Compton and the Lexington-Richland 5 School District released a joint statement Friday announcing Compton's decision.

The district's superintendent recommended Compton be fired after parents complained about the lesson, but Compton was deciding whether to appeal to the school board.

Compton's lawyer says he stomped the flag to show the idea of what America stands for is greater than the material objects like the flag that represent it and that the teacher did not intend to show any disrespect to military members to the country.
