A Ventura County High School history teacher was fired from her position after she was videotaped against President Biden’s vaccines and family during class.
Recorded Oct. 18 and shared with Ventura Unified School District by Sara Silicula, the mother of the student who recorded the video, Anacapa High School teacher repeated the lie about vaccines, stating that they “do not prevent the spread of the virus. from proliferation “and” actually caused more options. ”
The teacher, who was not identified by the district, also made false statements about the 2020 election and Biden’s family, including his son Hunter Biden.
In a letter sent Monday to the families of Anacapa High School, Ventura Unified Supt. Roger Rice said the district does not approve of “non-teaching discussion.”
“The teacher is still working in the school district; however they did not work on the Anacapa High School website [sic] Wednesday November 3rd, ”Rice wrote.
Silicula called the teacher’s tirade, first reported to the CBSLA, “indoctrination.”
“When she started talking about vaccines … [Silikula’s son] because he started asking, “Well, how could my parents not know these vaccines did it,” she told The Times on Monday. “‘Why [my parents] lie to me to get vaccinated? ”
Silicula said her eighth-grade son had more than just questions, and that he seemed to take some of the statements to heart.
“It was like a sudden life with a deep QAnon-er,” she said, noting that her son had begun to take anti-vaccination views and told her parents that Donald Trump was still president.
“His argument was that the teachers know everyone,” Silicula said.
Rice said an investigation into the incident began on October 18, after the video was passed on to school and district administrators. On October 25, the school began its autumn holidays. The students returned on November 1 when “the process of taking action began,” Rice said.
The next day, the class was transferred to another teacher.
Rice said the district followed the disciplinary rules set out in the collective bargaining agreement and that it cannot discuss personnel issues. He wrote in an email to The Times that “the teacher expressed deep remorse.”
Silicula said she was disappointed that the school administration did not do more to combat the conspiracy theories promoted by the teachers.
“Why didn’t anyone say,” You know what, since your son trusts the teachers, how about we sit down with the principal, who is the best teacher in the school, and she might say it was wrong. ” [The teacher is] wrong about that, ”Silicula said.
