Pro-Antifa Teacher in Calif. Given 3 Yrs’ Salary to Resign

'California is not an easy place to fire a teacher. I think everyone knows that... '

(Tony Sifert, Headline USA) A fired Antifa-supporting public high school indoctrinator was given a $190,000 settlement — triple his yearly salary — by the Natomas Unified School District in Sacramento, after video emerged last year of the “teacher” bragging to Project Veritas that he attempted to “scare the f—-” out of kids in order to turn them into leftists, the Sacramento Bee reported.

The district reached the settlement in order to avoid a lengthy appeals process and “tens of thousands of dollars of attorney fees,” with Superintendent Chris Evans complaining that it was too hard to fire bad teachers in the state of California.

“California is not an easy place to fire a teacher,” Evans told the Bee. “I think everyone knows that.”

Evans also admitted that the district had “missed” evidence of teacher Gabriel Gipe’s violently leftist rhetoric and the “revolutionary” decor of his classroom, which included pictures of Mao Zedung, Antifa flags, and a “swastika compass” that he used to shame moderate and conservative members of his classes.

“As we said 11 months ago, those were things that were missed,” Evans said. “And as the superintendent, I own that.”

News of the settlement caused an uproar amongst conservative education leaders in California, according to the Daily Mail.

“This exorbitant payout for a teacher who should have been terminated on the spot is illustrative of why trust in schools is eroding so quickly,” Erika Sanzi, director of Outreach for Parents Defending Education, told the Mail.

Harmeet K. Dhillon, former vice chairwoman of the California Republican Party, agreed.

“This is a classic example of the death-grip the California Teachers Association has on both our schools and our politicians — they’ve made it virtually impossible to fire even the most harmful, corrupt, and anti-learning teachers!” Dhillon said.

As part of the settlement, the district is not permitted to disclose to Gipe’s future employers the reasons for his resignation/firing.

“Whether he plans to teach again is unclear, but the settlement bars the district from discussing details of Gipe’s separation with any potential new employers,” the Bee reported.
