4. This headline is very misleading.

Here's an excerpt from the article, which includes the fact that she was able to address this issue later in an awards ceremony. It sounds as if the real problem is the other kids who keep making the salute to her, and their parents need to get involved, IMHO.

James Evans, a spokesman for Rutherford County Schools, said in a statement to BuzzFeed News on Tuesday: “The student was not disciplined or punished in any way for her concerns or actions. In fact, the school agrees the actions of the students were completely inappropriate.”

She was taken out of the room to calm down, according to the district.

Evans also told BuzzFeed that the school has decided that future projects will not include Hitler or the salute.

During the awards ceremony for the project, several students gave the salute when the student who portrayed Hitler went up to receive her award and were not reprimanded. When Gamble’s daughter accepted an award, she called on parents to talk to their children about why it is not right to make the salute.
