Muslim girl reports alleged bin Laden remark
Houston — A Clear Creek ISD teacher has been placed on administrative leave after being accused of making insensitive comments to a Muslim student about the death of Osama bin Laden.
The Clear Brook High School teacher is accused of profiling a student in his ninth-grade algebra class Monday by telling the girl, "I bet that you're grieving."
Late Tuesday, the district confirmed the incident, which remains under investigation.
The names of the math teacher and the student involved were not released.
"The Clear Brook High School principal has been in contact with the student as well as the student's family," school district spokeswoman Elaina Polsen said.
