Viral Video Catches Two Teachers Disparaging Students Over Virtual Learning


Two Vallejo teachers were placed on administrative leave after a viral video surfaced showing them bad-mouthing their students after a virtual lesson.

The teachers, who were confirmed by the district to work at Jesse Bethel High School and the incident happened after an English class.

Part of the exchange is below and it's reported that the discussion goes on for almost two minutes.

Teacher 1: "It's so frustrating to know ... these kids are technologically illiterate."
Teacher 2: "Older staff members will say these kids are so technologically advanced ... and I'm like no they're f****** not. No they're not."
Teacher 1: "The things that impress them are so sad. Oh, you're impressed that a kid can record a TikTok ... it's literally one button."

Chanel Bonner, the parent who recorded the conversation, says she it was clear the teachers didn't realize they forgot to logout.

"Other students were still logged in, other parents were still logged in, even commenting like, 'Do you know you're still being recorded?'"

A local television station reached out to the Vallejo Unified School District and was sent the following statement:

"VCUSD takes all student and parent complaints very seriously. We will evaluate our policies and procedures for online instruction, and will address any specific complaints regarding the appropriate conduct of our faculty and staff. We regret that any students were offended by this incident, and we will work carefully to resolve this matter."
