Some parents of students in a science class at Ann Arbors Scarlett Middle School are upset that a teacher has returned to the classroom following an investigation into the teachers alleged use of a racial slur.
Though some students in Dominic Helds class claim that he used a derivative of a racial slur during a conversation about intelligence and ignorance, Held stated to administrators that he had stumbled over his words and was tongue-tied, according to documents obtained by The Ann Arbor News through Freedom of Information Act requests.
Held, who is Caucasian, was removed from the classroom and was on paid leave for about three weeks while administrators investigatedduring which he was asked to read the book White Like Me: Reflections on Race By a Privileged Son by Tim Wise, and then discuss the book with Scarlett Principal Gerald Vazquez and district administrators.
The district threatened to terminate Helds employment with the district should he commit future misconduct as a teacher, and returned him to his classroom in late April.
However, parents of students in Helds class believe he should not have returned to the classroom at alland are critical of the way district administrators have handled the situation.
