Lawrence Branch of NAACP Critical After Teacher Accused of Racist Remarks

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — The NAACP in Lawrence is critical of school officials' handling of a middle school teacher who was suspended after he was accused of making racist comments during class. A letter to district officials expresses disappointment that school board members last month broke from past practice and agreed to accept the resignation of a teacher without publicly naming the teacher. The Lawrence Journal-World reports that the teacher who resigned is believed to be the same South Middle School social studies teacher who was under investigation. Ursula Minor, president of the NAACP's Lawrence branch, objected in the letter, saying future employers would be in the dark. Superintendent Kyle Hayden said in a statement that the district is committed to "providing learning environments free from harassment and discrimination."
