Civics: Burlington teacher suspended after allegedly directing students to watch video questioning election results

Scott Williams:

A teacher at Burlington High School has been pulled out of the classroom after allegations that he directed students to watch a video baselessly questioning the outcome of the 2020 presidential election.

Jeff Taff, a social studies teacher, also told students that he was traveling this week to Washington D.C. In an online lesson plan shared on social media, he claimed he was “standing up for election integrity.”

It was not immediately clear whether Taff was part of a demonstration Wednesday at the U.S. Capitol that turned violent, led to four deaths and delayed Congress’s confirmation of Joe Biden’s election win.

Taff could not be reached for comment.
