From NBC Miami – A Pompano Beach high school teacher who’s previously faced discipline for inappropriate conduct towards students is once again in hot water after she allegedly called a Haitian student “little chocolate boy,” according to an administrative complaint
Leslie Rainer, a teacher at Blanche Ely High School, is facing suspension over the comments allegedly made last May, according to the Broward School Board complaint.
Rainer was scheduled to attend a meeting before the school board Tuesday morning, where Superintendent of Schools Robert Runcie is expected to recommend a three-day suspension without pay and require Rainer to attend diversity training.
According to the complaint, the incident happened on May 6, 2011, when Rainer pointed a pointer at the student’s face “in a threatening manner” and said “look little chocolate boy.”
Rainer also told the student he was “chocolate that nobody wanted,” and warned him “you got one time, chocolate,” according to the complaint. The student recorded the incident on video, the complaint said.
