The Paterson school district is said to have ordered the removal of the post earlier this week. In it, the teacher reportedly called her 6 and 7-year-old students “future criminals” and said that she felt like a “warden” handling them.
The school district issued a statement saying that the teacher is on administrative leave with pay and that the matter is a “personnel issue” that is under investigation.MORE NEWS: COVID Vaccine: Memorial Sloan Kettering Patients Voice Frustration Over Lack Of Doses At New Jersey Sites
