A teacher, and he puts this trash on Facebook??? He deserves discipline!!
Akron Schools placed Spondike on administrative leave, and a school official said evidence from the case was sent to the Ohio Department of Education as a procedural matter.
Carrie so good to have you back on here. Take real good care!!
Thank you for this post - noted.

When I moved from Chicago to Ohio I was shocked by the amount of racist sentiment on the ground here. But I'm glad to see they are investigating this particular idiot.

Thank you for exposing the scourge of racism. That idiot should be be fired, and his teaching certificate should be revoked.

You would think being a teacher he'd know Not to spout that crap, especially on FB, one of the most looked at social sites. Truly an Idiot to think nobody would notice.
