A New York high school teacher is under fire after she told students George Floyd died of a heart attack and drug overdose.
English teacher Hope Antonelli made the claim about Floyd as part of a ninth-grade English assignment on Friday, The Times Herald-Record reported.
The article goes on to state the following:
The assignment asked students to “create a bold topic/thematic sentence.”
“George Floyd did not die because (Derek) Chauvin’s knee was on his neck,” said the assignment, which has since made the rounds on social media.
“He died from a heart attack and drug overdose. However, because Chauvin used excessive force and failed to render aid, he was convicted on all three counts by a jury of his peers. (Arrest was over a counterfeit $20 bill).”
Chauvin was convicted in May of the death of Floyd.
Also in the assignment, the teacher referenced a juror from the trial, Brandon Mitchell. Since the trial Mitchell has denied being associated with BLM.
“New evidence has surfaced that he could not have been forthcoming in his statements,” the assignment reads. “Should the Derek Chauvin case be retried because of Brandon Mitchell. Why or Why Not?”
Superintendent Kirk Reinhardt said that students were not comfortable with the assignment.
“We immediately got in contact with the (student’s) family,” Reinhardt said, according to the Herald-Record. “Our goal as a school community is to see that all our students feel they are seen, heard, respected and valued.”
The superintendent has not said if the teacher will face any disciplinary action.
