A Georgia high school student says her teacher insulted her in front of the entire class, calling her “dumb.”
Shaniaya Hunter has an eye condition that forces her to miss school from time-to-time. She says she was trying to catch up ahead of a test in December when the teacher made the comments. Shaniaya was recording the lesson on her school-issued iPad.
In the recording, a voice can be heard saying, “I have been around 37 years, and clearly, you are the dumbest girl I have ever met. … You know what your purpose is going to be? To have sex and have children you ain’t never gonna be smart.”
Time and time again the teacher would make disrespectful comments regarding Hunter’s eye condition. Hunter’s family will not stop fighting until the teacher is fired. Many supporters from around the globe are in agreement with Hunter and her family. Many do not feel this teacher should be in a position where he is teaching children.
