An East Side Union High School District teacher is on administrative leave after he appeared on camera bare-chested during a distance-learning class Friday. Elizabeth Avila said her daughter, a freshman at Silver Creek High School in San Jose, signed on for her second math class of the academic year only to find her teacher shirtless, in violation of the dress code he himself had outlined just days earlier.

“She started feeling uncomfortable,” Avila said in a phone interview. “She couldn’t concentrate on the topic because all she was seeing was this old man on camera in her bedroom.”
“I was just glad that my daughter realized, ‘Hey, this isn’t right’ and said something,” Avila said.
“This should be one of those zero tolerance-type of things,” she continued. “He needs to be out. If he thinks this is OK, what more is going to happen later if we let it slide?”

Look at this poopfest of a story. Notice how the news names a 13 year old minor, but the district protects its garbage employee. https://t.co/kdPt7qxQ5L— ByzTexWife (@PaniSvet) August 17, 2020
