Klein ISD teacher is unemployed after recording offensive comments

Read Time:2 Minute, 34 Second


Houston, Texas – Last week, in Klein Collins High School’s drama art class, race became a topic of discussion, and the teachers involved are now unemployed.

The student’s recording showed the teacher using “n-word” and making other offensive comments.

“I mean, if there is a word you shouldn’t say, why are you saying it?” A student shared a smartphone recording in the classroom on social media.

“I don’t know,” the teacher said. “Why are the people in my class leaving, you know, and say,’Man, ___you are crazy.’ Why do they say that? Why can’t I say that because I’m white? I don’t know how to say n.”

White male teachers continue to question why there is no white history month and comments on other races.

“At this time, I can tell you that this person is no longer employed by Klein ISD and we are still investigating this incident,” said Dayna Hernandez, Klein ISD’s deputy director of communications.

A few days ago, the school district announced the news because parents said they had informed the school of the video and wanted to know if this was the only reason the teacher left.

“Sir, your words are absolutely offensive,” activist Quanell X said at a press conference outside the school.

Many parents, including those whose children are in the classroom, joined him.

“This is ridiculous,” said his parents, Adrian Lopez. “It’s hard to hear without being angry.”

“It’s disturbing, it’s really disturbing,” parents Jamie Oliver said.

They hope that the ongoing investigation includes looking at the past of the current former teacher.

“Because if you have this mentality for blacks, Hispanics, and Indians, who knows what you did with the report card?” Quannel X said.

No criminal investigation was conducted, which is why we did not name teachers who did not respond to KHOU calls.

The following is the full statement of Klein ISD:

“At Klein ISD, we are proud to be able to create a safe space for every child in the school. This former employee failed to do this and is no longer employed by Klein ISD.

The statements made by this former employee do not reflect the shared vision of our school district, our employees, or any information about Klein ISD. We regret that our students have been affected by this language, and if any of them wants to talk to any of our consultants, we will let them contact.

Every child should feel safe and have a positive learning experience in school. We deeply regret that this former employee failed to do this for our students.

Currently, this incident is still under investigation. “
