telling him to depart the illegals in her school. She thought she was sending him a private message

A Texas English teacher was recommended for termination by the Fort Worth school board on Tuesday evening over tweets she sent publicly to President Trump asking him for assistance in “removing illegals” from her school district, according to local reports.

The eight-person school board voted unanimously to remove Georgia Clark, who teaches at Carter-Riverside High School in the Fort Worth district. Clark has been on administrative leave since the school district launched an investigation into her tweets, the local Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported. Clark has 15 days to appeal to the state for a hearing, but she will be on paid leave until that happens, according to the Star-Telegram.

Clark reportedly thought her tweets to President Trump — in which she said her school was “loaded with illegal students” and it was being “taken over” by undocumented kids and “drug dealers” — were private.

As a teacher, I would normally be very annoyed at a teacher being dismissed, but I'll make an exception in this case...
