First an unthinking math teacher wrote a math homework sheet that involved problems with how many times a slave was beaten per day.
He resigned. Was it insensitive? Yes. Should it end his career? That's debatable. But in all likelihood, it did.
Now there are reports that teacher's participated in a playground game involving escaped slaves (played by black kids). The jury is out but, according to the school's investigation, this was something perpetrated by the students themselves.
