Texas Teacher Reinstated and BLM Poster Remains in Classroom

A Texas teacher, who was put on paid leave for her support of the black lives matter movement, has been reinstated.

Taylor Lifka, who teaches high schoolers in Roma, posted pictures in her virtual classroom that some saw as controversial.

But Clay Robison with the Texas State Teachers Association says it's important to explain racial justice to older kids. "We're a multi-cultural nation, and black lives matter, and the black lives matter movement are very important parts of that," he says.

In a statement, Roma ISD says Lifka was not only reinstated to her classroom teaching position, but she will also be allowed to keep the imagery up.
