St. Paul Teacher Accused Of Discrimination Resigns, District Says

Update: In January of 2013 the St. Paul School District reached a settlement in the federal racial discrimination case against Timothy Olmsted.  Details of the settlement are confidential.  Following an investigation, the Minnesota Board of Teaching disciplinary committee decided not to hand down any disciplinary action against Mr. Olmstead and his teaching license is still active.

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The St. Paul School District says Tim Olmstead, the teacher who allegedly discriminated against black students in his sixth grade classroom, resigned.

WCCO-TV first reported on Olmstead’s alleged discrimination in January, after he was accused of calling black students “fat, black and stupid” and making them sit in the back of the class.

Olmstead has been on paid leave since Jan. 12. The district says he will not face disciplinary actions since he resigned.

The district accepted his resignation letter on March 20.

    He probably got a quarter of a million in severance pay.


    No, he was a classroom teacher who wanted the kids to stop reenforcing the sterotype, not an administrator of something or other.


    stereotype, sorry.

    They created Teacher Tenure to allow teachers and professors to stop them from being let go for being contraversal.

    It appears he was pressured to resign for engaging in blasphemy and not respecting an establishment of religion.

    It’s nice to see a follow-up report.

    He was let go because he is a racial bigot, sexual pervert.. Read all the articles. He should never be anywhere near children!

      using “Sex Pervert” propaganda is corny — shave your moustache and pluck your unibrow lady!

      Dr Phil had statistics on his show backing up some of the statements he made in class.

  • Gregory

    He’s accuse of talking about castration in front of the class. Sounds like maybe a run of the mill, garden variety sociopath was in their midst.

  • Dale Gribble

    Another patriotic White Christian American has had his career destroyed by the PC atheist secular humanist liberal agenda. When will we stand up for our Freedom and Liberty and destroy the criminal DFL and all of their DemocRAT allies?

    No offense, (although in this day and age the offensive are easily offended) but if you are going to post about an educator, please use spell check. Poor spelling and grammar really serve to invalidate ones opinion. You really are taken more seriously when you spell words correctly. Just a little reality check.

      By any chance? Do you look in the toilet before flushing too?
