Unholy for New Jersey teacher class suspended after Floyd comments

Jersey City: A new Jersey The high school teacher has been suspended from pay after profanity-remarks to students in his class about George Floyd, a man killed by a Minneapolis police officer.
A recording broadcast by WNBC-TV showed Dickinson High School science teacher Howard Zlotkin talking about Floyd and Black Lives Matter discussing climate change in a landscape and design zoom class.
Zlotkin, who is white, is heard telling people “to cry and cry about Black Lives Matter,” and he refers to Floyd’s profanity as a “criminal” who is “arrested.” And he is killed because he will comply with her “Another profanation is heard as he continues that Floyd is being considered a” hero “.
The following day included videos and one that contained a profanity and an obscene gesture directed by a student, WNBC reported. The student said that Zlotkin became irritable when she and three other students challenged her position, and the four were asked to write an essay on “Why Black Life Matters” – an assignment not to other students Given.
Superintendent Franklin Walker told that the language used is “unacceptable.” He said the district is investigating the situation and the police have also been informed “because some of it may be on the same level as hate crime.” “The comment that was made was very biased and he was not having this type of discussion with the kids – which had nothing to do with the subject in the classroom,” Walker said. “The situation in which they placed the children was definitely very uncomfortable doing and saying those things.”
The teachers’ union declined to comment, unless it has more details, union president Ron Greco said.
Jersey City Public School said in a statement late Thursday that the school was taking statements from students “before taking disciplinary action” until videos surfaced from the second day’s class.
In a statement on WNBC, spokeswoman Norma Fernandez said, “Teachers will not be able to reach the students or the school once we move forward.” Zlotkin, who has been at Dickinson High School for 20 years, has been suspended with salary from his assistant professor position at Hudson County Community College, Harassment Policy and Professional Conduct Policy.
A message seeking comment was sent Saturday to Zlotkin, who declined comment for the New York Times citing the investigation, but called the footage a “very well-edited sound cut” and said he was “a Day will love “Story.”
