BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – A letter from Baton Rouge NAACP highlighted the alleged actions of a teacher at Woodlawn High School.
A copy of the letter can be found below:
“The NAACP was recently contacted by an anonymous source indicating that a Teacher at Woodlawn High had allegedly engaged in highly questionable activities with her students.
These allegations included:
- Aggressively getting in the faces of those students while using racial slurs,
- Talking to those students in a derogatory manner,
- Accompanying students off campus to social events while consuming multiple alcoholic drinks.
Once notified, our organization opened an investigation and was able to recover recordings and videos supporting some of the allegations.
We then notified EBR Schools and Superintendent of Schools Dr. Sito Narcisse and turned over everything our investigation yielded. Dr. Narcisse and his team immediately took action, and that educator was placed on administrative leave pending further investigation.
The teacher has not been identified. The East Baton Rouge Parish School System released the following statement.
