A Florida middle school teacher will keep his job after an investigation found he used a racial slur in front of students more than once and told them not to date black boys.
David Swinyar, a 48-year-old math teacher at Kernan Middle School in Duval County, has also been accused by students of belittling them, confronting them in a “physically aggressive manner” and yelling at them, according to an investigation conducted by the Duval County School District.
He will face a 10-day unpaid suspension after the investigation found merit to all the complaints.
In October of last year, while teaching his math class, Swinyar had a conversation with students about the word “f***” after he overheard it in his classroom.
“If my daughter was dating someone who used the ‘f’ word, I wouldn’t have any respect for that n*****,” Swinyar said, according to the report. (The slur appears uncensored in the report.)
