A Dallas, Fort Worth teacher is under investigation after students there accused the teacher of separating them by race. The Fort WorthIndependent School district said in a statement that it is investigating the allegations.
A Dallas Fort Worth CBS affiliate reports that the alleged incident occurred in a music class on Friday at Hazel Harvey Peace Elementary school.
Parents also reported that the teacher insulted the black children.
“He called the class stupid, and when he separated the black kids from the white kids, he told the black kids I know where y’all from,”parent Sandra Lee said. “He said I can tell neither one of y’all get punished at home.”
CBS 11 also reported that the students were told to leave the classroom. When Lee went to the school to voice her complaint, she says she was told that all of the students had offered written statements about the incident.
“It was racist,” Lee said. “Everything that was going on was racist. At that school, at that classroom, with that teacher, it was very racist.”
Another parent reportedly said their child previously confided that there have been other questionable incidents in the music class, recounting a video with profanity which was shown to students in the class.
“Campus and District leadership have been aware of the allegations since last Friday. Once the facts are known, appropriate action will be taken,” wrote a spokesperson for the school.
