Teacher Booted from Class for Attending J6 Rally Wins School Board Seat

'After the victory, he said that his philosophy as a school board member will be "getting decision-making back with parents and away from the state"...'

Braintree High School in Massachusetts forced a teacher to resign after attending the political protest at the Capitol on Jan. 6, but, after a victory on Tuesday night, he now sits on the district’s school board, The Gateway Pundit reported.

Matthew Lynch, 35, taught high school at Braintree for 10 years before someone shared a picture of him at the Capitol on social media, the FBI reportedly harassed him, and he was forced to resign.

In a seven-way race with three open seats, Lynch easily won the second slot by earning 2,319 votes, Patch reported.

Lynch said the “digital Lynch mob” that shared the photograph was “slandering me as a domestic terrorist.”

The mob “decided they would take ‘justice’ into their own hands,” he said.

The FBI said that it “can neither confirm nor deny” that its state operatives interviewed and considered prosecuting Lynch about his First Amendment protected political activities.

Lynch refused to comment on the investigation, too.

“Good luck with your article…hope you don’t print false information!” Lynch told Patch.

After the victory, he said that his philosophy as a school board member will be “getting decision-making back with parents and away from the state,” The Patriot Ledger reported.

Lynch also outlined his beliefs about education and America’s future in his resignation letter to Braintree High School.

“My military experience as an Intelligence Analyst has given me unique perspective on what is currently going on in both our country and our town and I fear we are heading on a real collision course,” Lynch wrote.

“I feel I need to make my voice heard in the town of Braintree,” he said, “but in doing so will have unintended side effects which will be completely unfair to my students.”

Rather than abandon the public school as a lost cause, he claimed that it was “worth fighting for,” though many parents will leave public schools as they deteriorate.

“There is a revolution in education going on right now,” Lynch said. “More and more kids will be leaving public schools for private, Catholic or homeschooling, which will have a negative effect on Braintree’s schools.”
