*The Baltimore City teacher who was captured on video using the N-word as she yelled at black students in her classroom no longer has a job.
Baltimore city school officials confirmed the incident happened Wednesday at Harlem Park Elementary/Middle School in West Baltimore.
After putting a student out of her room and calling the rest of the class “idiots,” she warned that if they don’t straighten up, they’ll end up “broke ass nig**rs who are going to get shot!”
Video of the incident was captured by a student and has since gone viral with over a million views.
The district released the following statement Thursday:
“Yesterday a middle school science teacher at Harlem Park Elementary/Middle School engaged in verbally abusive behavior and made racially charged comments directed at students. The teacher involved in the incident is no longer employed by City Schools.
“At Baltimore City Public Schools, we are committed to creating positive and equitable learning environments in school communities where all members are welcome, supported, and valued. No form of discriminatory behavior of any kind is or will be tolerated.”
City Council President Bernard “Jack” Young tweeted about his disappointment in what he saw in the video.
“It turns my stomach to think about this woman in front of a classroom of impressionable young minds,” Young said. “There’s zero tolerance for adults who violate our young people. That video is proof that we have more work to do as a city and a country.”
