A Slidell High School teacher has been reprimanded for sounding off on Facebook in what some are calling racist post. Newsweek is reporting that Slidell High School teacher Valerie Scogin, sparked by the controversy surrounding Nike's decision to make former San Francisco 49'ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick the face of their 30th anniversary ad campaign.
The disgraced teacher has since posted apologizes on her account, saying"
"Recently I posted a comment that may have been hurtful to some of you. In my reaction out of frustration at another Facebook post, I made some remarks that were against my better judgment and sensibilities. I now wish I hadn't." "...the last thing I want to do is hurt anyone. I apologize for what I said and sincerely wish to avoid this in the future."
St. Tammany Parish School spokeswoman Meredith Mendez told Newsweek "The appropriate disciplinary action has been taken. I can’t comment further due to this being a personnel matter."
