Marshallese Advocates Say Teacher's Comments Indicate Need for More Cultural Training

Apr 2, 2021

A Springdale teacher has resigned after administrators were made aware of a video in which the teacher berates a student for acting like Marshallese students because he doesn't look the teacher in the face when the teacher is speaking. The district spokesman issued a statement saying the comments don't reflect the district's values. Marshallese advocates say the video indicates teachers need more cultural training.
