Parents revolt because the teachers were revolting

“From the evidence gathered so far, the teacher violated the district’s political action guidelines which are aligned with Board Policy and California Education Code,” read a letter from Evans. “For example, in addition to inappropriate statements from the video, the teacher posted a sign supporting a personal decision for at least (a) local political issue, and possibly more.”

The guidelines the teacher allegedly violated prohibit staff from distributing materials that advocate for or against a ballot measure; conducting political campaigns during work hours or in an instructional setting; using district funds or staff time for political campaign activity; or encouraging or discouraging political activity.
