“I’m fairly convinced that one of my students may be the evolutionary link between orangutans and humans,” the teacher said on the social networking site. The child to whom she was referring is not white. The comment received a few responses including one asking her to reveal to whom she was referring.
“W.W. Does that help?” she responded.
The teacher immediately deleted the thread, after another school official asked what the comment was all about–but not soon enough. The mother of the child who was the subject of the conversation learned of the thread and made a copy of the exchange.
The child’s mother, Lisa Wade, said she is “disgusted with how they talked about my child. It hurts.” She reached out to her local tv news station about the incident. “I send my child to school trusting them to teach him,” she said. “Not to talk about him.”
The principal of the school has referred the incident to the state’s Department of Education’s Office of Professional Practices, which will investigate the case, and could rule to revoke the teacher’s license.
