A Forth Worth, Texas high school teacher was fired after tweeting her support for President Donald Trump deporting illegal aliens.
The Fort Worth Independent School District board fired Carter-Riverside High School teacher Georgia Clark this week after a unanimous 8-0 decision, according to FOX 4 News.
Clark was suspended earlier this year after tweeting that Trump should “remove the illegals from Fort Worth.” The actual firing followed an official investigation into the tweet. The investigation included Clark appealing her suspension and an independent examiner concluding that Clark’s tweets should be protected under her free speech right. Clark had been on administrative leave since June.
“I do not know what to do. Anything you can do to remove the illegals from Forth Worth would be greatly appreciated,” read Clark’s full tweet sent to the president.
“@realDonaldTrump Mr. President, I asked for assistance in reporting illegal immigrants in the FWISD public school system and what I received was an alarming tweet from someone identifying himself as one of your assistants followed by a second tweet from the same person,” read another tweet, according to the Forth Worth Star-Telegram.
She also reportedly tweeted at one point, “Mr. President, Fort Worth Independent School district is loaded with illegal students from Mexico.”
“Carter-Riverside High School has been taken over by them,” the teacher continued. “Drug dealers are on our campus and nothing was done to them when the drug dogs found the evidence.”
Many citizens spoke before the official vote in favor of Clark being terminated from her job.
“There is no way in hell this woman should still be teaching on any level because she has already let you know she has a bias towards certain students,” speaker Waymond Brown said.
A mother of one student at the high school said, “You had your proof. You had the tweets. It shouldn’t have took this long — anybody else, they would have been out without a second chance.”
The mother, named Jowona Powell, had a student in Clark’s English class and she took screenshots of Clark’s tweets and made an official complaint to the school. Her daughter had also reportedly complained about allegedly racist behavior exhibited in the classroom. The daughter accused Clark of calling her hair “nappy,” which is far more of a fireable offense — if true — than a simple tweet.
The independent state examiner, however, said there was not enough evidence to back up claims of Clark’s allegedly racist comments made in class. Other students had also made complaints about alleged comments Clark made directly to them.
“They don’t need teachers like that. They don’t need people to be teaching hate. [Students] are there to learn,” Powell told FOX 4 News.
“It will help other kids by removing her,” Powell’s daughter added.
While the 10 speakers who spoke before the vote mostly supported Clark’s firing, she did have one supporter.
“I’m going to have to go against the grain of a lot of the public in general,” her sole supporter said before speaking in favor of Clark continuing to teach.
Clark now has the option to file an appeal directly with the Texas Education Agency if she wants. A spokesperson for the school board refused to comment on whether Clark will also be filing a lawsuit over her firing. Clark and her lawyer were not present at the vote.
