A California high schoolteacher was fired due to anti-military comments he gave in a classroom lecture, upsetting parents, students and school district board members. Gregory Salcido was teaching history at El Rancho High School, located in the Los Angeles area, until he was placed on unpaid leave pending an investigation.

A student recorded one of his anti-military rants during a lecture and it led to the El Rancho Unified School District’s move to fire Salcido. Salcido is also a city council member and was asked to resign, which request he refused.
