The teacher has been suspended without pay.
Another tragic situation has come out of Florida. CNN reports that a middle school teacher by the name of David Swinyar has been suspended from Kernan Middle School in Jacksonville after he told his 7th and 8th graders to not date black people "because they are not worth it."
Students reported the incidents to other school board members where he allegedly said: "If your boyfriend says bad things to you and/or treats you wrong, that means he's acting like a n****r."
He also said: "You all should not be dating all these different African-American boys because they are not worth it." Another report said David argued with a student about his daughter's dating habits. "If my daughter was dating someone who used the 'f' word, I wouldn't have any respect for that n****r."
David reportedly said he attended an African-American church and made fun of the preacher's preaching style. Other reports say he was heard calling students "dumb."
The disgraced teacher has received a 10-day unpaid suspension and has denied that he has said any of the comments.
"Following the employee's suspension without pay, he will be reassigned to an appropriate district position with no contact with students for the remainder of the year," Duval County Schools Superintendent Patricia Willis said in an official letter. "As an annual contract employee, Mr. Swinyar's employment contract with the district expires June 30, 2018. In May, recommendations for contract renewals for all annual employees will be considered."
