Flag Burning Teacher Fired

A Sacramento teacher who burned a flag in front of sixth graders days after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks has been fired.

Del Paso Heights Elementary school authorities said teacher Kory Grant Clift, 25, is no longer on the payroll.

Superintendent Carl Mack placed Clift on paid administrative leave September 18 when Clift partially burned a flag and referred to the nation as the United Snakes.
