DHMS Teacher On Leave After Racial Incident, Video; 5 Shot in South Philly; Coast Flooding at Shore

A Drexel Hill Middle School teacher has been placed on administrative leave after video of her yelling racially-charged comments at a parent following a minor car accident between the two in the school parking lot was shared across social media. The fender bender happened on Thursday morning, 10/10, while the parent was dropping off their child for class. The parent started to film the teacher after the teacher apparently became angry and was cursing. You can hear her on the video saying derogatory remarks towards the parent, assuming his class because of his race. She even acknowledged her bias saying, “That’s right, because you are black.” The video ends after she uses the n-word. The video was seen thousands of times on Facebook and other social media. "Upper Darby School District does not condone or tolerate inappropriate conduct or speech associated with hate, racism, discrimination or intolerance of any kind," a spokesperson for the school district wrote. "The deeply troubling comments and actions of this teacher are not indicative of the hundreds of outstanding teachers working in our schools each and every day." You can see the full statement below.



Five people were injured in a drive-by shooting in South Philadelphia on Thursday night, 10/10. It happened at 11:55 p.m. on the 900 block of South 5th Street near Carpenter Street in a courtyard in the Queen Village neighborhood. A car pulled up to the area and the driver and passenger both got out. They opened fire on the group of men, ages 19-57, who were reportedly playing a game of dice in the courtyard. The shooters got back in their older model, dark-colored car and fled the scene. 17 shell casings were recovered. The five men were shot in their legs and arms. They were taken to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries and are in stable condition.

Coastal Flood Warnings and Gale Warnings are still in effect for the the New Jersey and Delaware coastlines as Subtropical Storm Melissa churns out as sea. Many streets down the shore were flooded earlier on Friday, 10/11, and are expected to flood again this evening during high tide (7-8 p.m.) The storm is also battering shore towns with high winds and rough surf. Conditions are expected to improve on Saturday.

"Upper Darby School District has investigated an incident in which a teacher in one of our middle schools made racially charged remarks to a parent of a student who attends the school. The Principal of Drexel Hill Middle School contacted central office when he was made aware of the exchange. I met with the parent to review and discuss the incident. The parent reported that during morning drop off on Oct. 10, 2019, he and a teacher were involved in a car accident in the parking lot of Drexel Hill Middle School and that the teacher proceeded to make several racial and other derogatory remarks to him. The video of this incident has been posted to Facebook.

We took this report very seriously. As a result of the investigation, the teacher has been placed on administrative leave pending further investigation. We intend to vigorously address this issue.
Upper Darby School District does not condone or tolerate inappropriate conduct or speech associated with hate, racism, discrimination or intolerance of any kind. The deeply troubling comments and actions of this teacher are not indicative of the hundreds of outstanding teachers working in our schools each and every day. We are a District of over 12,500 students in a community of over 82,000 residents from over 60 countries, with over 70 different home languages. We are a community of many cultures and backgrounds, and we value our diversity. It strengthens us. Through the work we are doing around our Deep Equity Initiative, we will continue to challenge assumptions about the potential of the families whose children we serve and continue to increase access, opportunity, inclusion and support for all of our students.

The behavior, language, and treatment of one of our parents are not in keeping with our expectations of our teachers and staff. The comments and actions made by this teacher do not align with our core beliefs of Opportunity, Unity, and Excellence.
We will be working with our District's Deep Equity Team to develop ways to develop ways to reflect on this incident with staff across the District."
