A teacher at a Collier County school is facing backlash from parents after they showed a video celebrating “Confederate History Month” to the entire school. The video aired as part of the morning announcements on Tuesday at Manatee Middle School, according to a district spokesperson.
The school district wouldn’t identify the teacher but said they are investigating. “If you didn’t know, April is an officially celebrated month here in the State of Florida named Confederate H
History Month,” the teacher said in the video.
“Every year our state celebrates and memorializes that valiant, brave fight and the countless sacrifices by our men and women during what is known as the Civil War, but may be more correctly titled the War To Prevent Southern Independence,” he said.
In Florida, every month is Seditionist Grooming Month even in schools that receive federal funding it seems.
