YOU’RE FIRED: Teacher Canned For Allegedly Saying, “We Don’t Need Another Black President”

Published on April 19, 2014

Here are the broad outlines: Last December, a student in Gil Voigt’s freshman science class said he had aspirations to become president. According to the student, Voigt told him the nation didn’t need another black commander in chief. On Thursday, Voigt was terminated by the Fairfield Board of Education in a unanimous vote. Voigt said on Friday that he plans to appeal the ruling with the Butler County Court of Appeals.

In a statement released Thursday evening, Fairfield Superintendent Paul Otten said:

The district felt that the evidence was sufficient to support the termination of Mr. Voigt’s employment. The referee recommended such termination, and the board has concurred.

Voigt has claimed he was misquoted by the student, whom he describes as troublesome. He told Fairfield officials that what he actually said was, “I think we can’t afford another president like Obama, whether he’s black or white.”
