Nevada Teacher Watchlist: Teacher Believes Education is Racist
May 18, 2023
Jennifer Leja, a middle school teacher in Clark County School District, Nevada, posted a Tik Tok series in 2021 making racist, woke claims. Leja, a white teacher, made audacious statements ranging from “Education is inherently racist” to “History is white-washed,” and went so far as to say “White teachers are problematic.” What’s worse is the video implied that these messages came from her students and she agrees with them; they are not just her talking points on social media.
The Nevada teacher replied, "teachers are either the most woke humans on the planet of the most garbage humans - there is no in between."
