RACHEL CAMPOS-DUFFY (FOX NEWS CO-HOST): It's interesting. This is actually a charter school which claims to be a classical education, and so they've had to do a big, you know, turn around on their point because the parents are really upset. They think, but this a great example -- first, I wanna talk about a couple things. The mom, so calm. I'm impressed. Like, I wouldn't be that calm. Like, you know me. I'm not gonna go in be that nice about it, but kind of very politely educated the teacher who is not very educated, doesn't understand American history, and tried to associate with racism or something like that. So that's one thing. Two, the boy. He's so polite. He's so well-mannered. There was a subsequent video where he comes back, he had just done some podcasts and, you know, sort of gave his point of view and said, you know, I've come back, a lot of kids are now -- he came back to school and other kids are putting don't tread on me patches all over their lockers and their backpacks, and he said, this the sad part, he said I made some new friends, kids that I didn't know before that are now supportive of me, but the teachers were so mean to me, some of the teachers. How disgusting is that? So that was really bothersome. This is a reminder that you are your child's first and most important teacher. That mother taught that son about what don't tread on me. The rattlesnake was the symbol of America because the rattlesnake, if you try to step on it, it's gonna bite you back, and so this is a symbol of standing up. That's what that boy was doing. He's so -- he's such a patriot, I thought, I think that Brian Kilmeade is gonna adopt him. 


CAMPOS-DUFFY: Well, we see all these scores on how our kids are doing on these, you know, on these national tests and history's very bad. We need to give these tests to the teachers. 

STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): I thought they did before they got their teaching certificate. 

CAMPOS-DUFFY: No, because they all get licensed through these Marxist teaching schools that we have inside of all these universities. That's also why you have teachers that turn out like that, that have no idea about American history. They don't care about it. They get hired by a classical academy, a charter school where parents are supposedly pulling their kids out of public school to get a better education, and here's what they get. So just always be alert.
