DUBLIN, Ga. (AP) - Parents of a Georgia middle school student have accused a teacher of making disparaging remarks about President Barack Obama to students, calling him an evil man who hates America.

The parents, Jimmie and Stephanie Scott, tell The Courier Herald of Dublin (https://bit.ly/1CtQGUQ) that a teacher told her students that President Barack Obama is a Muslim and that Christians should not follow him.

The parents complained, and Dublin Schools Superintendent Chuck Ledbetter says he’s advised the teacher not to take political positions in conversations with students. He also says additional training for teachers is planned.

The Dublin newspaper reports that it contacted the teacher and her husband and that they declined to comment.

Dublin is about 130 miles southeast of Atlanta.
