Teacher Put On Leave After Racist Tirade A teacher at a Philly-area middle school has been put on administrative leave after she was filmed delivering a racist tirade in the school parking lot. The woman is heard using the n-word and a homophobic slur, after getting into a fender bender with a black driver, telling him to “go back to your welfare, to your Section 8 house”. Officials at Drexel Middle School say the woman has taught there since 2008 and is currently on leave “without pay” while the matter is investigated. Have you ever known someone for a long time that surprised you by saying something offensive? Should this teacher be fired?
