“In accordance with established protocol, we began an investigation on Thursday … when the allegations were brought to our attention,” district officials said in a statement. “The teacher in question was removed immediately from the school pending completion of the investigation. Threatening, abusive behavior will not be tolerated in any way and such behavior will be dealt with without delay.”
The suspension comes on the heels of several incidents nationally, sparked after businessman and reality TV star Donald Trump won Tuesday's presidential election. A student in a Detroit suburb posted a video of other students chanting "build a wall" toward Hispanic and Latino students. A teacher in Owasso, Okla., was caught on camera complaining about voters after the election.
