A white New York City teacher plans to sue the city for $1 billion over her firing in October following claims that she abused and humiliated black students during a lesson about slavery, according to multiple reports.
Patricia Cummings, who teaches in the Bronx, initially filed a $120 million lawsuit in Suffolk County, where she lives.
The article goes on to state the following:
The incident involved Cummings having black junior high school students lie down on the floor of the classroom. She allegedly put her knee on a student’s back in an effort to show how African-Americans were subjected to terrible treatment during slavery.
The 37-year-old teacher said Thursday she has “no career at this point” because of the publicity surrounding the incident and plans to launch a $1 billion class-action suit with other teachers who say they were discriminated against by the city.
