A Florida middle school teacher has been suspended without pay for using racial slurs in the classroom.

Duval County School District Florida teacher David Swinya was suspended after being accused of using the "N-word" with his 7th and 8th grade students.

Local news station Action News Jax reports that David Swinyar, a teacher at the Kernan Middle School in Jacksonville, has been suspended without pay for ten days after an investigation by the school concluded that he dropped the "n-word" in class and told students that "you should not be dating all these different African American boys because they are not worth it".

Swinyar tried to defend himself by saying he attends a black church, but then broke out in laughter and started mocking black preachers, according to students.

"If my daughter was dating someone who used the "f" word, I wouldn't have any respect for that n****r", the middle school teacher stated, according to the report.

"If your boyfriend says bad things to you and/or treats you wrong, that means he's acting like a n--", Swinyar said, according to student testimony in a school district investigative report.

After a student tried calling his mother about the October incident, Swinyar reportedly lost it. "You all should not be dating all these different African American boys because they are not worth it".

More than two dozen students said they witnessed Swinyar's tangent. His attorney said he denies making the comments and is preparing to appeal the board's decision.

The math teacher had also reportedly called students "idiots" and spoke about his love for President Donald Trump.

It was in late October that a student told a school board investigator what Swinyar had discussed with his students.

CNN received a letter from Duval Schools Superintendent Patricia Willis which was also sent to board members Thursday.

In addition, the report said "Mr. Swinyar belittles students by talking down to them about their FSA scores".

The teacher also faces claims of being aggressive toward students.

Hemphill wrote that the district was able to confirm the allegations of "inappropriate" communication between Swinyar and his students.

The teacher's contract expires in June, so the school district could simply choose not to renew it, First Coast News reported. This week, another Florida teacher was "removed from the classroom" pending an investigation after a HuffPost found that she had been hosting a podcast that promoted white supremacy.
