The Insite has learned a Houston charter school teacher has resigned after admitting saying a derogatory word to a student. Officials at Victory Preparatory Academy confirm Peter Eze resigned today. Eze, who teaches math at the small school, allegedly told a student who asked a question in class all she knew was ‘dick’. Lisa Berry Dockery, who heads the school, says Eze was first suspended for two weeks without and pay and later resigned on his own when the media caught wind of the incident. That student’s mother says the teacher’s behavior was unacceptable. Berry-Docker says, “we have confirmed an issue with the teacher…we had an investigation and he has resigned.” Victory Prep is located just northeast of downtown Houston. We have not been able to reach Eze who’s worked at Victory for at least a year.
Note: Why would the teacher say such a thing to a student in class? School officials say it may have been one of those days when the teacher just had enough!
