A private school in California is apologizing over an incident where a preschool teacher led her students in a chant calling for the ouster of President Joe Biden, The Washington Post is reporting.
A video showed a teacher at Turning Point Christian School in Norco, California, asking the students, “Who’s our president?”
“Biden,” the students replied. The teacher, who is not identified in the video, then asks the students, “What do we want to do with him?”
The students answer in unison, “We want him out,” as they made a “get out” gesture with their thumbs.
School authorities issued an apology after the video became public in February through the school’s messaging app.
“Earlier today a video was posted that has since been deleted as it did not share our school and church philosophy of honoring and respecting authority including those in government positions,” the school said in a statement.
“We are sorry for any misunderstanding this could [have] created,” she added. “With courtesy toward the families of our campus and the children in the classroom I am asking you to please not share with others or post the video on any social media platform.”
It is not clear if the teacher faces any disciplinary action.
Turning Point Christian School’s website says the school is a “nonprofit, Christian-based school for preschool through the sixth grade.”
