A 16-year-old Philadelphia student was ordered by her teacher to leave math class for wearing a Romney-Ryan t-shirt, according to FOX 29.

The teacher told high schooler Samantha Pawlucy to “get out of this class” and pointed to the door when she entered the room, then tried to mark the shirt with a red marker.

Pawlucy’s parents have called for the teacher, who reportedly compared the student’s choice of dress to KKK attire, to be fired immediately.

“This is Philadelphia, the birthplace of freedom and things like that, but we have schools that want to take away her freedom,” the girl’s father said.

The school promptly relieved the math teacher from teaching the class and has promised an investigation.
