American Teacher Called Racist For Making Students Speak English.
A New Jersey High School Teacher is under scrutiny for requiring students to speak English in her classroom. The incident revolves around a couple students speaking in Spanish during the class about a Yankees game. The Teacher who was teaching Algebra at the time rightfully scolded the children for interrupting her class.
“Military men and woman are not fighting for your right to speak Spanish. They are fighting for your right to speak American.’ The teacher stated after catching the students talking in her class.”
Students walked out of the class in protest and later there was a student protest of this incident. 100 students voluntarily participated in the protest, but a fire alarm was pulled causing the rest of the student body to join them if only temporarily. The principal has warned that there will be consequences for those that participate in the protest.
According to 2016 local statistic taken by the local school board, 49.7 % of students at Cliffside Park High School speak Spanish at home. The majority of students are either Latino or Hispanic.
The School district has yet to respond to this incident.
