UPDATE: Harrisonville Teacher FIRED Over N-Word Hot Mess

From a lesser blog . . .

“The Board concluded that Mr. Magoffin’s use of inappropriate language violated the rules and regulations of the District and was unacceptable conduct for a tenured teacher in the District,” the school district said in a statement. “We commend the students and parents in bringing forth their concerns to the administration so that this matter could be appropriately addressed.”

Attorneys for the district and Magoffin presented their cases June 15 during a public hearing that lasted nearly 12 hours, ending about 4:40 a.m.

A quick review . . .

Let's not forget that the teacher never insulted or directed the slur at anyone.

Instead he broke protocol and repeated the word used by a student as part of discipline procedures mandated by the district. 

He was a 27 year veteran and many parents from the district protested his "trial" and complaints against him.
