Middle school teacher accused of using racial slur and calling students dumb

Middle school teacher accused of using racial slur and calling students dumb

On October 6 a year ago, he reportedly addressed his students with the statement: 'If your boyfriend says bad things to you and/or treats you wrong, that means he's acting like a n*****. Other reports say he was heard calling students "dumb".

Allegedly, a student had told a school counselor that if his daughter was in a relationship and "that "n" said the "f" word, I would beat him up".

On Tuesday night, the Duval County School Board supported Swinyar's 10-day unpaid suspension.

In October of past year, while teaching his math class, Swinyar had a conversation with students about the word "fuck" after he overheard it in his classroom.

Over a dozen students in his class acted as witnesses for the investigation report, and majority agreed they clearly heard their teacher say the racial slur.

Another Florida teacher is finding themselves in hot water for their behavior in front on their students.

'You all should not be dating all these different African-American boys because they are not worth it'.

His 24 students were all witnesses to the incident, and black students called out his behavior.




In what appears to be a separate incident covered in the investigative report, students said Swinyar made other racist remarks in August 2017.

After being confronted by a student, Swinyar said, "I would never say that, but if I did, I am sorry", according to CNN.

The students also claimed that Swinyar told them that he attended an African-American church to make fun of the way the preacher preached.

"You are only enrolled in my class because you performed poorly on the standardized testing (FSA)", he allegedly told his class at one time. "He also snatched the phone away from the student".

He was at school as recently as Wednesday, but was not in a classroom, the school district told the station.

"Moreover, this is not the first racial incident between a teacher and a student at Kernan Middle School", that the mother has experienced, she told investigators. CNN affiliate WFOX-WJAX reports Swinyar will also get a letter of reprimand and a mandatory referral to the Employee Assistance Program.

Willis announced Swinyar's contract with the school district expires June 30 and that they'll consider whether or not they want to renew it in May. "In May, recommendations for contract renewals for all annual employees will be considered". This week, another Florida teacher was "removed from the classroom" pending an investigation after a HuffPost found that she had been hosting a podcast that promoted white supremacy.
