A high school student exited his Zoom classroom early after a teacher threatened to reprimand him for displaying the Trump 2020 flag hanging in the background on his bedroom wall.
The 16-year-old student was in his bedroom participating in an online class when his chemistry teacher took issue with the sign and demanded that he take it down or adjust the camera view, according to KOVR-TV.
A Colusa High School student exited his Zoom classroom early after a teacher threatened to reprimand him for displaying the Trump 2020 flag hanging on his bedroom wall.
Tiffany says her son’s high school chemistry 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.

Tiffany and her son, whom she did not want to be named, blame the school board who they addressed Monday evening. They asked that the board 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. More
