ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - The Cibola High School teacher, who allegedly made a culturally insensitive remark to a student and snipped another student's hair, is no longer an employee of the Albuquerque Public School District.


According to the district, they severed ties with the teacher on Nov. 30.

APS Superintendent Raquel Reedy reached out to the students to let them know the teacher wouldn't be returning.

The ACLU of New Mexico released a statement to APS Superintendent Raquel Reedy regarding the teacher violating multiple rights of the two Cibola High School students. 

The statement thoroughly reviewed the incident and emphasized the harms inflicted on the students.

In a different statement, APS said it values diversity and has a rich history of inclusion.
