Controversy has erupted after a history teacher from California was placed on leave after he reportedly compared Republican President-elect Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler. According to The Mercury News, the teacher, later identified as Frank Navarro is an experienced teacher who has taught students at Mountain View High School for over 40 years. According to the report, the school principal and the district superintendent told Navarro to leave mid-class on Thursday, after the parents of one of their students complained that he had compared Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler in one of his recent world studies class.
According to reports, the parents whose identity have not been revealed, sent an email to school officials expressing concern over the statements made by Frank during one of his classes. Following the incident, Mountain View/Los Altos High School District Superintendent Jeff Harding also confirmed the development. He, however, did not go into details about the complaint made by the parents.
