An LGBTQ flag was burned outside of the classroom of a transgender teacher at a Los Angeles area elementary school during a feud between parents and officials over a planned Pride event.
A group of parents of students at the Saticoy Elementary School have banded together and expressed their anger over an LGBTQ event where students will be exposed to a reading of a book about non-traditional marriages.
On Monday, a full-time teacher at the school said an LGBTQ flag that had been displayed in a flower pot was burned, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Police are investigating the incident, and school officials claimed it was being investigated as a “hate-motivated incident.”
The transgender teacher was also reportedly removed by the Los Angeles Unified School District as a safety measure.
The school district had previously responded to parents’ outrage in a statement to the Times.
