Florida Teacher Somehow Keeps Job After Saying THIS In Front Of Students!

Florida Teacher Somehow Keeps Job After Saying THIS In Front Of Students!

When a student called a parent to complain about the remarks, Swinyar allegedly grabbed the phone from the student's hand to prevent the call.

"The type of behavior demonstrated by the teacher is unacceptable and will not be tolerated because it does not reflect the positive learning environment we are committed to building at Kernan Middle School".

The school has since disciplined Swinyar with a 10-day unpaid suspension for the behaviors found in the investigation.

The report, presented during a regularly scheduled board meeting, also found that Swinyar had called his students "dumb", and told them that they ended up in his class because they failed the Florida Standards Assessment, an aptitude test required in the state.

"If your boyfriend says bad things to you and/or treats you wrong, that means that he's acting like a n****r".

Swinyar tried to defend himself by saying he attends a black church, but then broke out in laughter and started mocking black preachers, according to students.

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

Most of the two dozen students in his class agreed they clearly heard the teacher say the word, with one of the shocked students admitting he wanted to "go on a rampage" after hearing the slur.

"Mr. Swinyar yelled at the student and called the student a liar", an office assistant told investigators. When some questioned him about it, Swinyar denied using the word, saying he would "never" do so, according to the report. The school has 1,148 students - 22.6 percent of whom are African-American.

After this story was published, CNN was sent a letter Duval County Schools Superintendent Patricia Willis sent to the school board members on Thursday afternoon.

The school district says the suspension is its way of taking this incident seriously as they "skipped" the customary steps of issuing the teacher verbal and written reprimands.

Students also commented on Swinyar's penchant for politics, the Huffington Post reports: "He loves to talk about politics and Donald Trump", one student told the district investigators. "In May, recommendations for contract renewals for all annual employees will be considered".

An attorney representing Swinyar through the Duval teachers' union did not immediately respond to a request for comment Friday.

The teacher's contract expires in June, so the school district could simply choose not to renew it, First Coast News reported. And the entire school board who voted for just a suspension should be removed from office immediately.
