KLEIN, Texas - A Klein Independent School District theater teacher at Klein Collin High school is now out of a job after he was caught on several audio recordings speaking negatively against Hispanics, Indigenous people, and Blacks, using the N-word in class.
In the recordings, you can hear the student, who is discretely recording the conversation, speaking out and trying to tell her teacher those racial slurs are not appropriate to use.
Several of the student’s parents spoke to school administrators to resolve this issue. They tell FOX 26, the behavior was unacceptable.
"This is inexcusable and can not happen," said Adrian Lopez, Parent. "I don’t understand how someone can teach students and say this kind of language. It’s hard to deal with."
"I’m not the type of parent that’s not going to protect my child, at this point, to me, we were left no choice," said Jamie Oliver, Parent.
The parents tell us they informed the administrators over a week ago, they did not want to go the media. But they claim, after no action was taken, they had no choice but to contact us and Community Activist, Quanell X.
"Mr. G was attempting to intimidate these students, what you hear on the audio tapes are vile and repugnant, insensitive, and outright disrespectful," said Quanell X. "If you got that kind of mindset about Black, Hispanics and Indians, who knows what he did with his grade book."
In a statement from Klein ISD says:
"The statements made by this former employee do not reflect our district shared vision, our employees, or anything about Klein ISD. We regret that our students were impacted by this language…This incident is still under investigation at this time."
The district is also making available counselors for students who would like to talk about this incident.
