Teacher Threatens To Kick Student Off Online Class Unless He Removes Trump Flag

A Colusa County, California High School student claims he’s had the Trump 2020 flag hanging in his room since the first day of virtual school - but it wasn’t until last week that a chemistry teacher seemed to take notice.

KVOR-TV reports that the student’s mother, identified as Tiffany says the teacher did not approve of the political statement and asked him in the middle of class to get rid of it.

“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.

The family blames the school board, asking them to clarify the code of conduct for virtual learning.

“And he flat out told me no. We’ve just not been given any guidance,” Tiffany said.

The Colusa County Code of Conduct includes a dress code that bans clothes with alcohol or drug symbols, sexual messages, profanity, or clothing that degrades any race, but it doesn't mention politics, elections, or campaigning.

KVOR-TV did reach out to the superintendent as well as the principal and vice principal of Colusa High School for comment, but have not heard back.
