High school teacher suspended for racist remark

A Cypress Bay High School teacher has been suspended by the school board after calling a student a “Taliban” inside the school premises, the Sun Sentinel reported on March 18.

The Broward School Board suspended French teacher Maria Valdes for five days without pay for referring to a 14-year-old Muslim student as a member of a terrorist group. According to the complaint, Valdes called Deyab-Houssein Wardani a “Taliban” member several times. Although the student’s father and many supporters seek harsher punishment, Superintendent Robert Runcie stood by his decision to only temporarily suspend the teacher. Aside from the suspension, Valdes was ordered to undergo sessions of diversity training.
