LRSD FOURTH GRADE TEACHER REFERS TO HER STUDENTS AS MONKEYS - ONLY 10 WHITE STUDENTS ENROLLED AT THE SCHOOL
Melanie Watson, a fourth grade teacher at Little Rock school district Watson Elementary school took to Facebook to reveal her true feeling about the students at her school returning after a holiday break.
Watson Elementary only has 10 white students enrolled according to information we obtained earlier in the school year from LRSD.
Racist and bigots have long referred to blacks as monkeys. Click here for examples.
Upset parents protested at the school this morning and were questioned on how long they would be holding up signs in front of the school by the principal.
The teacher has deleted her Facebook page and we cannot review it to see if she made other similar racist posts.
We have requested information from the school district and will post an update when the information is made available.
***Update- 01/04/19 12:00 pm***
LRSD reports that they have suspended the teacher that made the racist post.

LRSD provided information regarding the racial breadown in Watson's classroom.
As we suspected, Watson has no white kids in her class.
LRSD needs to fire Watson before the end of the day. The State Board of Education gave them the ability to do that when they waived the Fair Teacher Dismissal Act for LRSD at a recent board meeting.
