Teacher Who Went on Anti-Military Rant Expected at Council Meeting

A Los Angeles-area teacher and city councilman who bashed U.S. military service members in classroom remarks is expected to attend a council meeting Tuesday where leaders could seek his resignation.

Leaders in Pico Rivera will vote Tuesday evening on whether to ask Gregory Salcido to resign from the city council.

Salcido has been on leave from El Rancho High since video surfaced of him scolding a 17-year-old student who was wearing a Marine Corps sweatshirt. The student recorded Salcido referring to service members as the "lowest of our low."

The video has drawn millions of views, along with outraged comments.

City Manager Rene Bobadilla tells the Daily News that Salcido will attend Tuesday's meeting, in what would be his first public appearance since he made the classroom comments Jan. 26.
