The Fairfield, Ohio teacher accused of slurring an African -American student lost his job Thursday in the wake of a labor hearing that concluded with that recommendation.

Freshman science teacher Gil Voigt has been on unpaid leave since December.

After the Fairfield Board of Education received a state referee’s decision that “there is good and just cause to terminate the teaching contract,” the board voted 4-0 Thursday evening, with one board member absent, to end his employment with the Butler County school system.

Voigt has declined to comment but told The Enquirer on Friday he plans to appeal the referee’s ruling with the Butler County Court of Appeals.

    Dash the dreams of a young impressionable child..you won’t do that again. Sit in time out and think about what you did. You week, insecure bigot, intimidated by anyone that does not look like you. You should never be allowed to speak to a child not to mention teach. Have several seats!
