Once again a liberal teacher tries to a quiet young conservative.
A teacher from Northern California recently threatened a student to take down his Trump 2020 flag hanging on his wall behind him during a virtual class.
The teacher began a countdown and told the 16-year-old student to take it down or she was going to kick him out of class.
Before the countdown finished the boy left the class.
Hats off to him, I would’ve done the same!
No dissenting opinions allowed!!!
A California high school student was given 15 seconds to remove a “Trump 2020” flag from view or be kicked out of a virtual classroom.https://t.co/GMyDwbB7oW

ABC 10 News covered the bizarre story and added these details:
A Northern California high school teacher threatened to kick a student out of a virtual class if he didn’t remove a “Trump 2020” campaign flag from his camera view.
The 16-year-old left the Zoom meeting for his Colusa High School chemistry class before the teacher could remove him, according to the boy’s mother, Tiffany. The teen was working from his bedroom where the political flag is pinned to the wall, his mother said.
Another student in the classroom took a recording of the virtual classroom as the teacher counted to 15. This is the only reported video of the class, which shows Tiffany’s son laying on his bed with the political flag in view.
“With the distance learning we are all forced to do because of the new color chart, the school district has not addressed the students’ rights in their own home to the teachers or to us as parents,” Tiffany said in an email statement.
The 16-year-old has not been punished for the incident, however, his mother said she has growing frustrations about Colusa High School’s policies since the school moved to all distance learning due to the coronavirus pandemic.

CBS 13 News chipped in too:
A Colusa High School student exited his Zoom classroom early after a teacher threatened to reprimand him for displaying the Trump 2020 flag hanging on his bedroom wall.
“Since school has begun, my son has had this Trump flag hanging in his background,” Tiffany, the student’s parent, said.
“You can sit up, remove the flag, or reposition your camera within the next 15 seconds or I’m kicking you out of class,” the teacher said during their virtual class.
Tiffany says the teacher then began to count and did not make it to 10 before Tiffany’s son waved goodbye and exited the virtual classroom.
Her son told the school board Monday evening that he now feels uncomfortable returning to his chemistry class after this situation transpired.
I’m sure that student would have never walked into a teacher’s classroom and tell them to take a poster off their walls.
So, why is this teacher is telling a student to take down a flag that supports our President in his own house?
