Teacher Who Boasted About Turning His Students Into Revolutionaries Set To Be Fired

The California high school teacher caught on camera boasting about having “180 days to turn them (his students) into revolutionaries,” will be fired by the school district, the Natomas Unified School District said in a letter Wednesday.

A Project Veritas video caught Inderkum High School AP Government teacher Gabriel Gipe on camera explaining his plans to politically radicalize and indoctrinate his students with his far-left, Antifa-aligned ideology.

The Natomas Unified School District (NUSD) said in a letter that it spent two days investigating Gipe’s actions and his classroom environment. As of Wednesday, the district put Gipe on paid leave, but the district said it would next place him on unpaid leave before firing him.

NUSD learned that Gipe violated the district’s political action guidelines that outline what staff can and cannot do while teaching. Gipe received and opened copies of these guidelines in 2018 as well as September 2020, according to the letter.

“For example, in addition to inappropriate statements from the video, the teacher posted a sign supporting a personal decision for at least local political issue, and possibly more,” the letter said.

Some current and former students expressed support for Gipe on social media, but the district said it also listened to students who shared discomfort about their teacher’s views or actions. The district apologized to those students who felt uncomfortable in Gipe’s classroom throughout the past three years.

“Some students have shared that the teacher has stated he believes students will move to the left as a result of his class,” the letter said. “That is unacceptable.”
