“What do we want to do with him?” the teacher asked. “We want him out,” the students responded.
At least one Southern California teacher is clearly not a fan of Joe Biden.
A President’s Day lesson turned controversial when a Norco parent saw video of her daughter among students chanting “we want him out” after her teacher asked the class who the president is and “what do we want to do with him?”
Video of the four and five-year-olds chanting the political statement about Joe Biden was posted on an internal app for parents of students at Turning Point Christian School…
While many of us agree with the sentiment, this was ill-considered and upsetting to parents.
One mother, Christina McFadden, said she “was just in shock” over the video and contacted the school.
“The teacher is indoctrinating her students,” McFadden told KTLA. “Everybody has a right to believe in what they want, and my daughter wasn’t given that opportunity. And especially at that age, I don’t even think that she can comprehend to make an informed decision on who and what she should believe in.”
McFadden said her first reaction was fear.
“Fear that this was sent to 14 families with differing views. Fear that it appeared to be a political propaganda video and that it would spread as such with my daughter front and center,” she said.
McFadden, who declined to identify the teacher, said the video was removed from the app within hours. In its place, a school administrator left a message for the parents who had received it.
The school has issued a statement apologizing.
Turning Point officials said in a statement to parents that the school was “sorry for any misunderstanding” caused by the video.
“Earlier today a video was posted that has since been deleted as it did not share our school and church philosophy of honoring and respecting authority including those in government positions,” the school statement said.
It would be nice if schools stopped indoctrinating students on a whole host of subjects, from “climate crisis” to “gender identity”. Parental fears about the impact on their children by activist teachers are no less real or important on these matters.

The concerned mother should be grateful that the teacher opted not to use one of the more popular chants.DONATE
