Teacher suspended for posting rant videos on YouTube

Posted on Tuesday, March 1st, 2016    

According to an article from CBS Chicago, a male teacher in Chicago was suspended after the rant videos he posted on YouTube against religious and transgender individuals went viral.

According to reports, the teacher, Daniel Berry, has been suspended while he is being investigated by Chicago Public Schools (CPS).  Berry, who was a music teacher at Kenwood Academy, reportedly posted YouTube videos where he uses foul language in speaking against Muslims, Jews, and transgender individuals. In a statement, the school system said that they are committed to ensuring that standards for personal and professional conduct are met by all school staff members. Students’ opinions differ on whether Berry should continue working in the school or not.
