Williams said in his statement he believes the school is trying to deceive people by saying Orletsky has been “removed,” from class and said the math teacher is being moved to another classroom.
“Principal Darrell Herring is supporting the suppression of free speech by refusing to publicly address and fire this out of control teacher,” Williams said. “He has placed political correctness above his students.'”
Seth Weathers, Williams’ spokesman, said Williams was angry that he couldn’t get a comment from school officials about Orletsky’s employment status.
"They are trying to let this blow over with her getting paid to sit home and then bring her back to another class," Weathers told The AJC. "When asked if they are considering any disciplinary action, they again refused to comment."
The protest is expected to take place outside River Ridge High School at noon Sept. 27. The school is located at 400 Arnold Mill Road in Woodstock.
