Alabama Teacher Resigns Following Slurs

A teacher in the Conecuh School District has resigned after a video of her using racial slurs was released online. According to a WMPI article by Cory Pippin, Olivia Stephens-Squires, a former English teacher and volleyball coach, was recorded in an argument with her child’s father in which she used offensive language regarding race and ability.

The article additionally states that following parent calls to the school board, Stephens-Squires resigned before any disciplinary action could be taken against her by the board. Parents were looking for the board to act at a faster pace than they did in taking action against the former educator, but they stated that they wanted to carefully make their decision.
