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

Florida Teacher Suspended For Telling Students Dating Black Boys Isn't Worth It

Florida Teacher Suspended For Telling Students Dating Black Boys Isn't Worth It

Over two dozen students acted as witnesses for the report and claimed that they heard Swinyar use the racial slur. Teacher David Swinyar is accused of telling his students not to be romantically involved with African Americans "because they are not worth it" and other inappropriate behavior for a teacher.

"If my daughter was dating someone who used the "f" word, I wouldn't have any respect for that n****r", the middle school teacher stated, according to the report.

The Duval County School Board's decision this week to suspend a Kernan Middle School teacher accused of using a racial slur in his classroom has drawn the ire of the local NAACP as the case has attracted national media attention.

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*****.

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. The teacher allegedly made comments like, "You all should not be dating all these different African-American boys because they are not worth it". According to students, he then went on to mock black teachers and reportedly "loves to talk about politics and Donald Trump".

"Mr. Swinyar yelled at the student and called the student a liar", an office assistant told investigators.

He has now been suspended by the school district after evidence suggested it wasn't the first time he had used the slur in class. "He also snatched the phone away from the student". CNN affiliate WFOX-WJAX reports Swinyar will also get a letter of reprimand and a mandatory referral to the Employee Assistance Program. He will be reassigned and will not have contact with the kids for the remainder of the year, Duval County Public Schools Superintendent Patricia Willis told board members.

The teacher's contract expires in June, so the school district could simply choose not to renew it, First Coast News reported. "In May, recommendations for contract renewals for all annual employees will be considered".

David Swinyar was suspended 10 days by a Florida school district.

And no, this is not the same racist teacher who was outed as the host of a white supremacist podcast.
