Teacher sacked after racist tirade on 12-13 year old students | VIDEO

A teacher in Baltimore has been sacked from her school after a video of her shouting at her students and using racial slurs went viral.

The shocking footage shows the woman, whose name has not been released, shoving a student out of the classroom before launching a disgusting tirade onto the rest of the class, eventually using the 'n-word'.

It happened at Harlem Park Elementary/Middle School on Tuesday (15th November). The students in the classroom were aged 12 and 13 years-old.

The students react in horror and disbelief, and rightly so.

The video was originally posted on Facebook and Twitter and has resulted in a lot of backlash.

Baltimore Public Schools have described the teacher’s behaviour as “verbally abusive” and said, “racially charged comments were directed at students.”

They have released a statement, confirming she had been sacked:

"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 behaviour of any kind is or will be tolerated."
