Channel 2 Action News confirmed the teacher worked at Cedar Grove High School. The district did not release the teacher’s name.

Parents complained that the teacher had shared a social media post showing a man kneeling on a crying toddler's neck. The post was apparently in reference to police officers in Minneapolis who knelt on George Floyd's neck, killing him. The man in the post was arrested in Ohio.
