“In following the principles of democracy, Natomas Unified staff is following due process, the law, and spent the past two days investigating the alleged teacher actions and his classroom environment,” Superintendent Chris Evans wrote in a letter to the Natomas Unified School District community. “As of today, this teacher was placed on paid leave because of his actions and choices in the classroom. Natomas Unified will be taking the legally required next steps to place the teacher on unpaid leave and fire the teacher. By taking a day and a half to investigate beyond the video, the district was able to learn more facts essential to the next steps.”
Evans noted in the Sept. 1 letter that posters and signs have been taken off of the classroom walls.
“This morning, the walls of the classroom were cleared of all posters and signage. Not all of the material was inappropriate. However, the district believes the physical learning environment can best be rebuilt from a total fresh start,” Evans wrote.
He also said that the teacher spent his own funds to buy stamps that featured images of figures including Fidel Castro and others.
“Additionally, the teacher, using his own money, purchased a series of rubber stamps. These stamps include an inappropriate image of Josef Stalin with an insensitive phrase, as well as other stamps with Fidel Castro, Kim Jung Un and others. These were purchased shortly before the pandemic and their use was likely initially limited due to Distance Learning. The district’s investigation did discover that at least during the 13 days of this school year, he was using those stamps to mark student work as complete,” Evans said.

From Project Veritas: Pro-Antifa high school teacher in California admits that he is indoctrinating his AP Government students to communism. He’s on camera saying “I have 180 days to turn them [the kids] into revolutionaries’.
In the video, Gabriel Gipe, Inderkum High School teacher, is asked how he accomplishes his goals. This “man” boasts “Scare the fuck out of them.” This man is teaching your children.
At another point, he talks about comparing his students to fascists when they say the Antifa flag he proudly flys in his classroom makes them uncomfortable.
“I have an Antifa flag on my wall and a student complained about that and he said it made him feel uncomfortable,” he said. “And I addressed it to everyone because I didn’t know who it was. ‘Well, this is meant to make fascists feel uncomfortable, so if you feel uncomfortable, I don’t really know what to tell you. Maybe you shouldn’t be aligning with the values that [the Antifa flag] is antithetical to.’”
Yet when he’s confronted by a Project Veritas reporter his complaint is that they make him uncomfortable.
In pictures of his classroom, you can see his Antifa flag and something that might be even more disturbing, a poster of Mao Zedong.
Natomas Unified School District issued a statement to Fox News saying it was aware of the video and was looking into it.
“We understand that parents and Natomas community members have expressed their concern about the contents of this video,” the statement read, in part. “We respect and recognize their expressions of concern. Natomas Unified, as always, will look into this matter and take any appropriate actions as necessary. District policy explicitly states, ‘Whenever civic education includes topics that may be controversial due to political beliefs or other influences, instruction shall be presented in a balanced manner that does not promote any particular viewpoint.’ That is always the expectation.”
“Sadly, a number of emails have come in from outside our community that express hate and threats,” the statement added. “There is sad irony in that outsiders are expressing displeasure towards the individual teacher while also using intense vulgarity, hate speech and threats of violence.”
He’s not the only California teacher to make waves this week. Don’t forget the teacher who removed her American flag and had students pledge to the pride flag instead.
