A New Jersey high school teacher who had the audacity to tell a student to speak English inside her classroom is facing severe backlash.
A student filmed the teacher at Cliffside Park High School lecturing a youngster for speaking Spanish instead of English.
She told the class that soldiers were fighting for their freedom.
“They are not fighting for your right to speak Spanish,” the teacher said. “They are fighting for your right to speak American.”
Those comments enraged the town’s Latin American community — leading some to call the teacher a racist, local news outlets reported.
“She isn’t allowing the student to express his constitutional right,” one recent graduate said.
