A high school sophomore in Missouri was given a three-day suspension after she filmed her instructor using a racial slur in the classroom last week.
This prompted the teenager’s lawyer and mother to demand that the school district apologize and remove the suspension from the teenager’s permanent record.
The incident occurred on May 9 in a geometry class at Glendale High School in Springfield. According to the teenager’s attorney, Natalie Hull, the kid’s teacher repeated the slur multiple times, prompting the student to pick up her cellphone and video it.

The teacher’s employment with the school system has been terminated, according to Springfield Public Schools. According to Hull, the student was given a suspension because of a provision that forbids students to record members of the faculty unless they have the members’ approval first.
In a statement, the spokesperson for the school district, Stephen Hall, said that the educator is no longer working for the school system. Hall also defended punishment for pupils under similar circumstances.
