Public schools can often be cesspools of immorality and even danger for young children. Drugs, sex, crime, threats of bodily harm, not to mention the secular, humanist indoctrination children are subject to day in and day out.
If your children are in public school, any of these things might be a serious concern for you. But would it ever occur to you that your child’s teacher might be recruiting them into Antifa?
Yvette Felarca is a radical leftist Antifa protester who was arrested last week at UC Berkeley for suspected battery and resisting arrest. This isn’t her first charge; she has managed to put together quite a lengthy rap sheet for herself over the last eight years and is currently being indicted for “assault by means of force likely to inflict great bodily injury, participating in a riot, and inciting a riot.” All this while maintaining a career as a middle school teacher.
But that’s not all.
The Blaze reports that court documents reveal that not only was Felarca recruiting students into her Antifa-affiliated By Any Means Necessary group, but she was taking them to protests in her personal vehicle without the permission of the school.
As a middle school teacher for Berkely Unified School District, Felarca was presented with a “Notice of Unprofessional Conduct” and a “Notice of Unprofessional Conduct/Unsatisfactory Performance” in 2016, both of which were submitted to the court and revealed through proceedings.
The “Notice of Unprofessional Conduct/Unsatisfactory Performance” document reveals that Felarca promised her students and their parents a trip to a rally at UC Berkeley before obtaining permission from the school principal. When the principal denied her request because “it was an opportunity for [Felarca] to indoctrinate students and use them to support [her] own political agenda.” Felarca reportedly responded “unprofessionally toward [the principal] when she denied [her] permission.”
The document goes on to reveal that Felarca was issued a formal letter of reprimand in 2012 for an after-school trip she took students on without permission and ended up leaving a student behind, claiming he “wandered off.”
It’s pretty much all downhill from here. Felarca, it turns out, faced quite a bit of conflict with school administration as she constantly lied about her absences, spent class time telling her students about upcoming protests she planned to attend, and even transported students to protests after-school and on weekends in her personal vehicle, oftentimes, when parents did not fully understand that these were not school-approved trips.
“The results of the initial student interview indicated that you were continuing to invite students, and take students, on unauthorized field trips to protests, in blatant violation of the directives given to you in the first NUC/NUP and the Second NUC/NUP,” the letter says. “As a result of safety and liability concerns, and because there was an upcoming protest apparently scheduled for that weekend, the District decided to place you on paid administrative leave.”
It didn’t stop here–after being put on paid administrative leave, Felarca tried to contact students and parents and try to convince them as well as the public that she was suspended for her political views!!
Furthermore, Felarca had her lawyer, Shanta Driver, who is also BAMN’s national chair, contact students and parents as well. The letter states this was “not only clearly in violation of the directives set forth in the administrative leave letter, but was also in violation of state and federal laws, as well as District policy regarding student privacy.”
It should be noted that while Felarca is facing various criminal charges for her violent protest activities, she is also attempting to sue Berekely Unified School District for their disciplinary action against her.
One has to wonder, why was she so determined to bring young students to her violent rallies?
