Yonkers teacher accused of using racial slur against student

A Yonkers teacher was pulled from class after being accused of using a racial slur against a student last week.

Donasia Farmer, 11, claims her gym teacher at the Robert C. Dodson School, Jeff Greenwald, called her a ?nigger? in front of 30 other students when she didn?t listen to him.

Greenwald has been pulled from class until the school investigates the incident. However, Farmer?s parents think the teacher should be fired. The interim school superintendent says the district has clear expectations of mutual respect for both students and staff.
