This is supposedly based entirely on one student’s account, and how often do students tell the truth; however, if there is, indeed merit to what the student claims (other students back up the story), then this teacher absolutely deserves to be fired, no questions asked. There is no excuse whatsoever for this, especially from a teacher. If a teacher wants to make racist remarks, let that teacher make those remarks outside of school, far away from it, preferably, only in the privacy of his/her own home, not that that gives condoning of what is done. No teacher has the right to demean a student based on race, religion, ethnicity, nationality, physical disability, etc. I have experienced discrimination from teachers based on disability and religion. It is never called for, never has merit of any kind, and should NEVER BE TOLERATED!
