Education, and specifically how young students are being indoctrinated by the far-Left promises to be a paramount issue in determining which party will control Congress next year.
After a light shines on radical educators they sometimes get shown the door by administrators or they quit on their own once public pressure mounts.
Here, one pro-Antifa high school teacher is going away, but the circumstances will leave you seething.
A California teacher and supporter of Antifa, who bragged about indoctrinating his students as revolutionaries, has been paid handsomely by his school district to resign.
Back in September of 2021, Project Veritas released a video that showed a pro-Antifa high school teacher boasting about using his position to indoctrinate his students.
From ProjectVeritas.com at the time the teacher was caught on video, “Project Veritas released a shocking new video today of California AP Government teacher, Gabriel Gipe, boasting about politically indoctrinating his students at Inderkum High School. Gipe said that his intention is to radicalize students into supporting Marxist ideas by using the public school system as an avenue to incentivize them to participate in fringe extracurricular events.”
“I have 180 days to turn them [students] into revolutionaries…Scare the f*ck out of them,” Gipe said.
“I post a calendar every week…I’ve had students show up for protests, community events, tabling, food distribution, all sorts of things…When they go, they take pictures, write up a reflection — that’s their extra credit,” he said.
Gipe said he keeps track of his students’ political inclinations. He is also perplexed when a student expresses discomfort with the decorations in his public-school classroom.
“So, they take an ideology quiz and I put [the results] on the [classroom] wall. Every year, they get further and further left…I’m like, ‘These ideologies are considered extreme, right? Extreme times breed extreme ideologies.’ Right? There is a reason why Generation Z, these kids, are becoming further and further left,” he said.
This is the guy who was paid three years’ salary to bugger off.
Now Fox News reports that officials in January agreed to pay Gipe $190,000 to leave his post without fighting his prospective firing.
With an annual salary of $60,000, Gipe netted $100,000 after taxes.
According to the report, Gipe was on paid leave for all of last year.
Still, can we really put a price on keeping these kinds of radicals away from our kids?
Let’s hope there are many more cases where those truly unfit to teach are shown the door – but without the price tag.
