California Teacher’s Profane Classroom Rant Caught on Video
(LOS ANGELES) -- A California high school teacher who was caught on video dropping a flurry of F-bombs in a classroom has been suspended pending an investigation, a Los Angeles Unified School District spokeswoman told ABC News Thursday.
“I can confirm the teacher has been pulled with pay, but everything else is confidential at this time,” spokeswoman Monica Carazo said. “Generally, if a violation of our code occurs then, yes, we meet with these individuals and discuss the appropriate actions needed in the future.”
Carazo declined to comment further on the teacher and would not provide a name, but said the school district is aware of the teacher’s tirade. However, Carazo confirmed she is a 12th-grade English teacher at Humanities and Arts Academy of Los Angeles, a subsidiary of Narbonne High School.
In the clip, which was recorded by an anonymous student on Sept. 26, the teacher can be heard yelling at her students in frustration.
“I know my f—ing s–t. Don’t f— with that,” she screams in the recording. “I’m tired of trying to educate you, and you guys resist every step of the f—ing way. Get the f— out of here.”
According to LAUSD’s code of ethics, teachers and/or administrators “are committed to creating an environment of trust, care and respect.” The district “will not tolerate discriminatory or harassing behavior of students or colleagues,” the code also states.
The code also prohibits “engaging in any behaviors, either directly or indirectly with a student(s) or in the presence of a student(s), that are unprofessional, unethical, illegal, immoral, or exploitative.”
However, the student who recorded the video isn’t in the clear either.
The school district’s Parent/Student Handbook states that district policy “prohibits the use of cellular phones or any electronic signaling device by students on campus during normal school hours.”
The investigation is still ongoing, Carazo said.
