A Trump protest triggered a heated school board meeting filled with concerned parents in Jurupa Valley Tuesday night.

There were some students who didn’t go to school last Thursday, instead they marched for “A Day Without Immigrants.” This prompted a few teachers to post how their day went on social media.

Part of what one teacher wrote was “… having my class size reduced by 50 percent all day long only served to support Trump’s initiatives and prove how much better things might be without all this overcrowding.”

And one other teacher wrote “… small classes, trouble makers were gone, fantastic day.”

A man at the school board meeting was angered and said, “I urge you to fire them and create an educational environment that is productive for our students.”

Firing the 6 Rubidoux High School teachers who made the social media comments is the punishment multiple people want the school board members to carry out.

CBS Los Angeles reports there were a lot of folks who believed the comments about a mostly Hispanic school were racist, however not everyone did.

One woman at the meeting said, “If you go to the mall and there’s 50 percent less people you know you’ll get in line easier, lines are shorter, things like that.”

Board President Robert Garcia stated, “We are committed to conducting a thorough investigation and bringing this matter to a conclusion as quickly as possible.”

The teachers are on paid leave during the investigation, which could take months to complete.
