A Colusa High School California teen was ordered by his teacher to remove a Trump 2020 flag from his bedroom wall while taking an online Chemistry class.
According to KOVR-TV, the student was told to remove the flag from the camera’s view.
“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.
The teacher began a countdown, and did not make it to 10 before the student waved goodbye and left the virtual classroom.
“With the distance learning we are all forced to do because of the new color chart, the school district has not addressed the students’ rights in their own home to the teachers or to us as parents,” the boy said in an email statement to the television station.
