High school teacher suspended for posting discriminatory rants on Twitter

A female high school teacher in West Virginia was suspended from her work due to claims that she had posted Twitter messages filled with discriminatory remarks, a report of Daily News stated on January 10.

According to reports, Huntington High School teacher Mary Durstein had been attacking other religions and races through Twitter rants since 2015. In some of her controversial Twitter posts, Durstein had vented against Muslims, claiming that they are the enemies. Another Twitter post of Durstein, seen by students, claimed President Obama could’ve had familial ties to the African-American suspects of a recent crime involving a disabled teenager. Durstein, who was suspended with pay, reportedly deleted her Twitter account on January 9. The school district officials are expected to investigate Durstein’s behavior to figure out whether further penalties should be imposed on her.
