One of the girl’s mothers said her daughter isn’t even Haitian.
FORT MYERS, Fla. — A teacher’s helper at a Fort Myers middle school allegedly told students to “go back to Haiti.”
After the Pledge of Allegiance at Lexington Middle School, students are supposed to stay standing for a moment of silence. When two girls sat down, the paraprofessional in their classroom said they should go back to Haiti.
One of the girl’s mothers said her daughter isn’t even Haitian. The other girl has Haitian descent but was born in the United States. She said it was super embarrassing.
The Lee County School District said, “We are aware of the incident at Lexington Middle School and the employee has been removed from the classroom pending the outcome of a District investigation.”
