A 16-year-old student learning at home in a virtual high school chemistry class was told he would be kicked out of the class if he didn’t remove a “Trump 2020” campaign flag from the wall in back of him in his bedroom. The boy’s mother told ABC10 that he left the Zoom meeting being held for his Colusa High School chemistry class before he could be removed. She said, “I made it very clear that when he repositioned the camera, either the flag needed to be removed or not in the background or she was kicking him out, and she gave him 15 seconds.”ABC10 noted, “Another student in the classroom

Unless schools make kids have a distinct uniform background for Zoom meetings, unilaterally- What is in a personal home is zero business of teacher.. kids could have stopped being live streamed- teacher could do a bunch of other tasks.. But - if said student had a BLM, a Planned parenthood , a Harris/Biden sign- or an LBGT sign- would there have been an issue?

This sounds like teacher preference. Teachers need to realize the virtual classroom is not the same as their physical classrooms, and they need to get over themselves. Teachers and school administrators need to remember who pays their salaries; they need to get in line just like they demand of their students.

The student handbook includes: “Student expression on school or Internet websites and online media shall generally be afforded the same protections as in print media. Students’ freedom of expression shall be limited only as allowed by Education Code 48707, 48950, and other applicable state and federal laws.” The administration apologized. Apparently the problem is solved, the administration gave the teacher an excuse, and the publicity let's us know about yet another stupid California school teacher anti-Trumper.

#4: In a zoom class, the teacher is the host of the meeting/class. She has the ability to move a student to a waiting room or remove him from the meeting, with no chance of him getting back in. She can take him off video and mute the audio where he cannot be seen or heard by others. She can block the chatroom too. I agree the teacher is probably an anti-American Trump-hating lib, but it’s her classroom and the student can’t do much about it other than put the her on the spot with bad publicity.

Was he joined by his friends in singing an Ode of praise to Trump, as did the parent/teacher-induced kiddie fans of Obama? Nope. He's just a teenage kid, now, sad to say, learning about the ugly Democrats who demonstrate to us every day, how quickly they'll exercise dictatorial powers if they get their hands on the levers of power again.

Looking at those union contributions (94/6 split) give pause to consider how that translates in the classroom. I think the Dept of Ed should investigate the schools to determine if the teachers are bringing their political views into the classroom as those numbers suggests. If so, then to the extent there are their should be withheld until the schools have fully restored the rights of free speech and all other rights due a student. I also think that because of the mission of public schools the schools should be held to a higher level of scrutiny. Moreover, I think that public schools should be required to post the students' rights and what action students may take if they believe their rights have been violated. This involves federal issues, federal rights that are being denied and, given the importance of education, the results should hard, fast, and painful for any violation. I also think that the extent of the federal government should not be in the education business. Their proper role is the protection of their constitutional rights. This kid was bullied by an adult who has power and authority over her charges and she is abusing such. There is a lot of this going on in the public schools and it is past time for the Trump administration to set the standards for the adults that run these union reform schools - I know they don't use that named any more,they have "progressed" simply by changing the name. There are some still some around that continue with the "reform school" name - there always some one didn't get the word. I just thought the original worked better here.

Number 7 - my grandchildren attend school in California (SFBay Area) and I have been in the room and heard the teacher tell the Zoom class ‘“You must have your camera on.” I have been told by my grandchildren that they must have their camera on for their classes or they are not counted as “present.”

Thanks, #12. The teacher insists on the camera being on, but the student can't have their own home decorated the way that they want. These are totalitarian thugs, given power by the state. The teacher needs to be fired.

As I see it #5, then in the case that she can remove this student at his/her discretion because of the student's background, then I say it's time for all students to return to the classroom. This is the student's home. I believe the teacher was out of line. #1 is correct. This teacher threaten this student on what basis, guidance, or restrictions that he needed to comply in order to participate in the zoom classroom? From what I understand, it was her personal restrictions or bias.

CLAIM: Debate moderator Chris Wallace implied that President Donald Trump never condemned white supremacists. VERDICT: FALSE. President Trump has done so repeatedly, despite what Wallace — and Joe Biden — have suggested. During the first presidential debate, Wallace challenged President Trump to condemn white supremacists. It was an astonishingly ill-informed — and inflammatory — challenge, and repeated a lie that Biden has told frequently in the campaign. Trump has condemned white supremacists repeatedly. As Breitbart News noted in a recent fact check: ABC News fact-checked Biden, and noted — commendably — that Trump condemned white supremacists

Chris Wallace, the moderator of the first presidential debate Tuesday night, insists he will try to remain “as invisible as possible.” That would certainly be a welcome change from his performance in the final 2016 debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. A lot of Democrats no doubt assume Wallace will go too easy on the president simply because he hosts a talking-heads show for the “conservative” Fox News network. But Wallace is not an admirer of Trump. Nor is he above gotcha questions and phony “fact checks.” It was Wallace, you will probably recall, who pompously lectured Trump as follows during that last 2016 debate:

“Two weeks to flatten curve.” Remember that? It was several months ago now. The deal elected officials struck with the American people was to trade lockdowns for hospital capacity. The fear in the early days of the COVID pandemic was that hospital capacity would be overwhelmed if we didn’t lock down, curb activity, and so forth. So we got “two weeks to flatten the curve.” New York City built a hospital into its Javits Convention Center. President Trump sent a Navy hospital ship to handle the expected caseload. None of that capacity was needed. Way back in June, CNN declared that New York had “flattened the curve.”

But according to Fox’s Bret Baier, the Commission in charge of the debates has set it as ninety minutes without a break and the Trump team is refusing any change. We reported that the Trump team wanted to check to make sure that there weren’t going to be any earpieces or electronic devices involved helping Joe Biden but that Biden was refusing the check.

Minnesota schools, reopening amid a pandemic and a national reckoning over systemic racism, are sharpening their focus on the state’s decadeslong problems with achievement gaps and educational disparities. Around the state, schools are adding new staff to focus on equity in classroom instruction and hiring, and approving policies that define—and disavow—racism.(Snip) Minnesota’s educational gaps are stark; the most recent statewide test scores showed that 63% of white students met proficiency standards in math, compared with 26% of Black and American Indian students. Graduation rates have ticked up in recent years, but white students are still more likely to earn a diploma than students of color.
