A center college in Killeen, Texas, has parted methods with a instructor who assigned college students worksheets with racial and different derogatory phrases.
In a letter to folks Thursday, the Killeen Unbiased Faculty District stated the now-former instructor, whose title has not been launched, handed out “an appalling and intensely disturbing project.”
The worksheets, which have been handed round to about 10 college students in a category at Rancier Center Faculty, included a “Set off Phrases Scramble” that featured the N-word, in addition to phrases like “fats” and “crackhead,” in line with Waco-based ABC affiliate KXXV.
“There isn’t any argument to condone such an offensive gesture, and we deeply remorse the project was ever created and distributed to even a small group of scholars,” wrote Superintendent John Craft within the district’s letter.
The instructor was a brand new rent, having joined Killeen ISD in August.
The project brought about outrage in the local people. About 90% of the college’s 785 college students determine as a minority, with most being Black or Hispanic.
Within the letter to folks, Craft stated the unauthorized project “doesn’t help nor replicate” the district’s values.
“The classwork was inappropriate, insensitive, and failed miserably to help our mission,” he wrote.
The district continues to be investigating the incident, and Craft stated that folks of scholars within the class have been “personally contacted by the campus principal.”
