High School Student Removed from Zoom Class over Trump Support

A student at Massabesic High School in Waterboro, Maine says she was removed from a Zoom class on Thursday over a Trump flag that was displayed on the wall behind her.

Massabesic High School student Mollie Woodbury says that she was kicked out of her math class’s Zoom session due to a flag in support of President Donald Trump that was hanging on the wall behind where she does her school work, according to a report by WKYC.

The student claims that her math teacher had asked her to remove the Trump flag. Woodbury said that she told her teacher the flag was in her bedroom and was not offensive, and refused to remove it from the wall. Woodbury then received a notification informing her that she had been removed from the virtual class by the meeting host.

“I kinda feel like my right to have my own opinion was taken away by her,” said Woodbury of her teacher. “She’s losing her right to learn, it was just uncalled for,” reacted Woodbury’s mother, Amanda Morrison, who added that she is proud of her daughter for recently getting interested in politics due to a civics and government class at school. “I love that she’s intrigued in politics because that’s not something that everybody gets into,” said Morrison.

District Superintendent Larry Malone told NEWS CENTER Maine that “RSU 57 supports the rights of both students and staff to express their views on matters of public concern.” “There are; however, times when the District must make content neutral time, place and manner restrictions on speech to ensure the orderly operation of its schools and the educational process,” he added. “Whereas educators are pretty familiar with what is and is not appropriate in the traditional classroom, we are all still learning the rules in a virtual environment.” “In this case, staff acted to ensure that permission of such display and others would be appropriate in the online setting,” said Malone. “This situation has been discussed and resolved at the local level.”

Woodbury said she has since been able to join her math class, but added that her teacher has not acknowledge her at all. “I just don’t really want her to like hate me or have anything against me because of this,” she said.

      This student should sue the teacher and the school for political harrassment. The KKK is going to visit this teacher. They will have fun with her. Ha,ha,ha.

    You have every right to put up anything you want in your room. The other students can’t see what you have, they can only see teacher. The teacher was offended they are all socialist. Your mom is right, good to see young people interested in politics.

    Teachers are able to dictate what is on the walls of their classroom. Not what is on the walls or a students bedroom. This is no different then a school telling a student they can not wear a political statement on thier clothing. Clear violation of the 1st amendment.

    No doubt if another student had a Joe Bite Me flag on the wall, nothing would have been said and the teacher would have complemented her on her wonderful taste and given her/him a passing of an A. The teacher is a Joe Bite Me supporter and is biased.

    That means that student will never go back to in learning class. She will then stand her ground and get schooling at home online and resist the totalitarian system that tries to dictate her personal life at home.

    Apparently it never occurred to teachers or school authorities that people are going to have a home decoration or furnishings or items in their homes that wouldn’t be a school setting. A BB gun in a boys room, a fathers’ rifle on display over a mantelpiece or in a cabinet, books by conservative authors on a shelf nearby. It would be understandable if a teacher saw porn plastered on the walls or violent, disturbing images or bigoted and racist slogans, but we’re talking about a simple pro-Trump flag on the wall in a girls’bedroom. For this teacher to kick her out of her virtual math class because the teacher didn’t like Trump is inexcusable. Even though this teacher is allowing her back in the class she is treating the student as if she has the coronavirus. This teacher and this school district need a lesson on the US Constitution and especially regarding what rights a student has in his or her own home.

      I think this girl now will forever be a conservative Republican because of this teacher and feel if she is getting the cold shoulder, she should file to have this teacher removed from position for biased feelings as teachers need to teach and not preach! Ask to be put into a different class perhaps.

    Public schooling and college is an attrosity anymore. What an embarassment to those that graduated when it was not over populated with liberal imbeciles in school and pathetic attempts at teaching. Not all teachers and professors have caved in but what a load of garbage such as this actually having access to children!

    If people want control of their country again, we’d better start sticking up for our country better and get these liberals under control, disciplined, and held accountable for the idiocracy.

    Was there any rules that were broken, set by the school? If there were then I understand but would like to know how she was taken out of ZOOM meeting. If no rules broken, she should not have been removed. Unfortunately it sounds like the teacher is holding it against the student, which would be immature of the teacher and wrong!

    If it’s in your house, your room as long as it’s not on the schools physical property. It’s not their business. As for my opinion. They are there to teach not descriminate on students personal opinion.

    I was a former teacher, her job is to teach, NOT TO JUDGE what is on the walls of this young woman’s bedroom walls…it isn’t like it is pornography!! This teacher should be FIRED!! There is absolutely no excuse for her behavior! She acted like a spoiled little toddler and that should NEVER be tolerated by a school or district! This poor girl is trying to learn and God forbid she supports our President!! Shame on her teacher!! Shame on the school!! And shame on the school district!!

    The teacher is apparently Democrat. I am glad that young people are taking an interest in politics. This kind of behavior by a teacher should be reprimanded. The more I hear about Democratic Party and it’s supporters the more of a Republican I become. I am glad a non politician decided to run and won office. Gives us a glimpse of hope for the citizens of the United States.
