Incident Report: Austin, TX

 

At least 60 students walked out of a South Austin middle school and circled the school building Wednesday afternoon in protest of a teacher’s culturally insensitive comments to a student, according to students and school officials.
Several Fulmore Middle School students who participated in the walkout Wednesday told the American-Statesman they were protesting because a teacher in a social and emotional learning class had told a student, who was speaking Spanish at the time, to “go back to Mexico.”
