A teacher from a local school is being accused of racism after she was accused of having “bigoted views”.
The teacher was suspended after her Facebook post attracted criticism.
A white woman has been accused of “bigotry” after she posted a video of herself teaching a maths class.
In the video, she describes a white woman and a black man as “needy”, “frauds” and “thieves”.
A number of teachers and students have also called for the teacher to be removed from the school.
The video has been viewed over 10,000 times on Facebook and received widespread condemnation.
“There’s a real sense of injustice in this country, and it’s not just about white people,” Teacher Baren Williams told the BBC News website.
“There are people of colour, women, LGBTQIA people, people of different ethnicities, people who are indigenous.
This is a really important lesson for all of us, and to me, it’s just a really, really good lesson for people to learn.
It’s a lesson for me because my own children have struggled, and I know that I’ve been able to teach them from a very young age.”
A report published by the Higher Education Policy Institute (HEPI) said that the video “reveals a clear and persistent pattern of exclusion”.
It said the video was filmed at a private school in the town of Wokingham, in the Yorkshire region of England.
Mr Williams said the teacher, who he does not name, had been accused by a number of other students of “harassment” and of “racism”.
“I’ve been told by a lot of people that they don’t like my opinions,” he said.
He said the videos of teachers were “absolutely appalling”. “
That’s the most common response.”
He said the videos of teachers were “absolutely appalling”.
In a statement, HEPI said: “We are absolutely appalled by this incident and we are investigating it thoroughly.
We are committed to fostering a safe, inclusive and respectful learning environment for all students in our schools.
HEPA will continue to monitor the situation and ensure that the rights of all students are protected.”
In response to the teacher’s alleged racism, a number of teachers and students have called for her to be fired.
‘Not a teacher that I would expect’A number other teachers and teachers who responded to the Facebook post on the teacher were not surprised by the reaction.
They said they were “pretty surprised” by the video’s widespread circulation.
Teachers said they had not heard of the video being taken down.
Baren Williams, who teaches a maths course at the school, told the ABC the teacher had been accused of “racial and sexist” comments and of having bigoted opinions.
He told the broadcaster: “I’ve heard this before but I didn’t expect this to spread so widely and to be such a big deal.
If the teachers and the students in my class had received any criticism or criticism at all about the way they were taught, they would have taken it seriously.
I think the teachers, in my own school, would have come to the same conclusion as well.”
‘There is no room for racism’In a Facebook post, the teacher said she had been “proud” of her school and the people who were involved in it.
She said she hoped the videos would encourage teachers and pupils to be more inclusive and “not a teacher I would ever expect to teach”.
She added: “This is my opportunity to say thank you to all the people who have worked so hard for my success and I will never forget the kindness of those who have supported me and the people I have taught.”
Ms Williams said she was concerned that her video would have an effect on her teaching.
“If my video has had an impact on teachers, I don’t think it is fair to ask teachers to give it up for the good of all,” she said.
‘I just wanted to get a word in’Another teacher, Emma Lee, said she believed the video of Ms Williams had been made “to try and make the situation worse for her”.
Ms Lee told the Daily Mail: “It’s definitely not a teacher who I would expect to teach at all.
To me, she was just another student.”
She told the ABC: “To me she just had this a lot of issues going on in her life, which is why she had her own personal issues, her own mental health issues and her own family issues.”‘
