Parents of Williamsville Central School District have been left in complete shock and outrage following the issuing of an offensive Spanish homework assignment they’ve deemed as racist!
According to CNN news, sixth grade students recently received an assignment from their Spanish class, where they advised to translate various sentences from English into Spanish.
One of the pointed out sentences read, “You (friendly) are Mexican and ugly,” another one read on the same, “You (politely) are pretty and American.”
After a series of parents forwarded the issue to officials, administrators of the school district issued an official statement. They’ve identified that the assignment was created by the teacher in charge and declare the incident as completely unacceptable.
“We are addressing the situation to ensure this does not happen again. The District does not condone any instructional material that denigrates our students, families, culture, or beliefs. This assignment fails to meet our standard and will be dealt with appropriately.”
Sources have confirmed that the school district communications director, Nick Filipowski has noted that they would not be commenting on this incident beyond the statement issued.
The identity of the teacher in question has not been confirmed at this time, neither has any details of disciplinary acts set in place for the issue at hand.
Reports read that Williamsville Central School District is located on the out skirts of upstate New York within the Buffalo area.
