Teacher in Texas school district was fired after distributing “very upsetting” worksheet containing racial slurs and insults to special needs class in 7th grade

After giving worksheets to students with special needs that contained insulting comments and racist slurs, a teacher in Texas was fired.

According to Killeen Independent School District Superintendent John Craft at a press conference on Friday, the worksheets were distributed to a class of roughly a dozen seventh-grade kids at Rancier Middle School with special learning needs.

“Trigger words, and it grew from there, definitely in the wrong direction,” Craft said of the assignment.

The vocabulary words used on the worksheets included the N-word and the R-word, along with vulgar insults and slurs like “fat,” “ugly,” and “bitch.” As per KXXV-TV, the words were presented in word scramble, fill-in-the-blank, and matching tasks.

Craft declared, “We will not support this kind of behavior. We want to make sure that similar incidents don’t happen in any other classrooms throughout the district, so we’re still looking into the matter.

It was their first year working for the district, Craft added, adding that the teacher who distributed the assignment “is no longer a staff with the district.” Administrators did not approve the assignment in advance and never would have, according to Craft.

Craft stated during the news conference that “we’re about doing the right thing.” “It’s how we handle these situations. I believe that thus far, we have acted immediately, swiftly, and appropriately.”
