Texas teacher fired after telling students he thinks his breed ‘is the best’

A middle school teacher in Pflugerville, Texas has been fired after a video taken in his classroom showed him telling students he thinks his breed “is the best”.

The teacher, who is white and whose name has not been made public, was employed at Bohls Middle School but was placed on administrative leave after the video went viral.

On Monday, Douglas Killian, superintendent of the Pflugerville Independent School District, said the teacher “is no longer employed” by the district and the district is “actively looking for a replacement,” according to Austin Fox affiliate KTBC. .

A video taken by a student shows the teacher telling the students that “deep in my heart, I am ethnocentric, which means I think my race is the best,” according to Austin NBC affiliate KXAN.

“I think everyone thinks that,” the professor says in the video. “They’re just not being honest about it.”

The father of one of the students shared the video on Instagram, writing, “I’m so angry I’m at a loss for words but I will be standing up for my child and the other black and spanish kings and queens in this video.”

In the statement announcing the teacher’s firing, Killian apologized on behalf of the district, saying “this conversation does not align with our core beliefs and does not reflect our district or our culture at Bohls Middle School.” He wrote that the discussion “was inappropriate, inaccurate and unacceptable”.

Killian said in his statement that advisers and administrators are “available to any of our students and families who wish to discuss this situation further.”
