EWA BEACH, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow)
A Campbell High School teacher is facing heat after saying in an email to faculty members that he would refuse to teach the children of those in the United States illegally.
He was scheduled to meet with the school’s principal Wednesday.
Hawaii News Now obtained a copy of the email, which was sent Wednesday morning. The full text of the email reads:
This is another attack on the President over deportation. Their parents need to apply for immigration like everyone else. If they are here in the US illegally, I won’t teach them.”
Officials declined to say whether Sullivan had been disciplined by the school’s principal but state Department of Education spokeswoman Donalyn Dela Cruz said Sullivan’s message was “disheartening and concerning.”
