Baltimore school employee fired, accused of being involved in attack on Afghan student

Zainab Chaudry, Spokeswoman and Maryland Director for the Council on American-Islamic Relations joins Gabe Ortis for the discussion.

(Baltimore, MD) -- A Baltimore City Public Schools employee is out of a job due to their alleged involvement in an attack on an Afghan student.

The Maryland Chapter of the Council on American and Islamic Relations claims an Afghan student at the Baltimore City Academy for College and Career Exploration was adjusting her hajib in the girls' bathroom when she was attacked by other students.

The student tried to escape the attack but a school employee reportedly locked the bathroom door from the outside.

Baltimore City Schools said it was made aware of the incident and took the proper disciplinary action against the school employee.

There is no immediate word if the students involved in the attack will face disciplinary action.
