A California teacher has been recorded on a Zoom call saying that she dares parents to call her if they have a problem with the way she's teaching by distance learning - and telling one student there's no need for a 'white student union' because whites already 'get everything.'
Alissa Piro, a teacher at San Marcos High School, was captured ranting at students in a video that was later posted to a private Facebook group, and shared on Twitter by an activist group calling for the full reopening of California schools.
The exasperated educator complains that she is 'sick to my stomach of parents trying to tell educators how to do their job'.
Her comments come at a time of heightened tensions between parents, California Governor Gavin Newsom and teachers unions over delays to a return to in-class learning.
A coalition of parents have launched a lawsuit against Newsom and six California school districts seeking eased COVID restrictions and a return to physical classrooms.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer
Alissa Piro, a teacher at San Marcos High School, dared parents who wished to criticize her teaching methods to 'come at me'
'I am so sick to my stomach of parents trying to tell educators how to do their job,' Piro says in the clip, which was later posted to a Facebook page of parents disaffected by California's ongoing school shutdown
The clips appear to have been recorded by the family member of a student, and show Piro discussing the ongoing lockdown and school unions.
A student can be heard asking: 'Where is the white student union?'.
Piro responds: 'You don't need a white student union, you get everything.'
The high school teacher then wails on parents who would dare criticize her.
'If your parent wants to talk to me about their profession and their opinion on their profession, I would love to hear that,' she says.
'However, if your parent wants to come talk to me about how I'm not doing a good enough job in distance learning based on what you need as an individual? Just dare them to come at me.
