Texas substitute teacher fired for using the ‘N’ word

“’They had a substitute today, and guess what he said?’ And I said, ‘Well, what did he say?’ ‘Well, he said n-i-*-*-*-r’ And I said, ‘What?!’” the mom said.

A substitute teacher in Arlington, Texas, reprimanded one of the students for saying, “Oh, my god!” The student asked why using the expression was such a bad thing. The teacher told the student, ‘That’s using Jesus’ name in vain.’”  Then went on to say, “It would be like me saying the n-word.” When another teacher questioned the substitute about using the vile word, the teacher replied, “Yes I said n***er, and I’ll say it again.”

The following Monday, the substitute teacher returned to the school but a parent emailed the district and filed a complaint against the sub, which launched an investigation into the matter.

In a statement, the district says it “confirmed that inappropriate language was used, and the substitute was terminated. The district does not condone the use of any offensive, derogatory or inappropriate language in educational learning environments.”

The district would not comment on the substitute’s employment history or whether or not any complaints had been filed against him in the past.
