Teacher Suspended

By  | 

The Washoe School District has suspended a pine-middle-school teacher, accused of shouting a racial slur at a student this week.

The District says witnesses told them... the teacher was in the cafeteria, monitoring the before-school breakfast program when he told an 8th grade girl, she was done eating.

When the girl said she wasn't done, the teacher allegedly shoved the African-American student and made a reference to her race.

District officials say, the teacher is now on paid suspension, while the district attorney's office investigates.
