Awtrey middle school

COBB COUNTY, Ga. (CBS46) -- A Cobb County substitute teacher is out of a job after students allege the teacher wrote a note labeling students as devils" and "angels." 

CBS46 received the tip from a parent with a son at Awtrey Middle School. The parent went on to say that students who saw the note took photos and sent to them to their parents.

In a Facebook post, the parent went on to say:

"And please, if you're reading this ... don't say how you're sorry this happened to my son who is a straight A student, comes from a two-parent  household and flies planes in his spare time. Instead, think about how you can remove your unconscious bias and racist motives before you step out of your home and engage with anyone who doesn't look like you."

A district spokesperson released the following statement:

“A substitute teacher was fired after school administration was made aware that the substitute composed two lists, one titled ‘angels’ and the other titled ‘devils.’ The names of black and white students appeared in both columns. The District doesn’t tolerate any adult we employ making comments which are disrespectful in any way.”
