TORONTO — A Richmond Hill, Ont., high school teacher connected to a series of anti-Islam tweets and a blog post discussing his desire to impose atheism on students was fired after a 10-week York Region District School Board investigation.
Richmond Green Secondary School English teacher Michael Marshall was dismissed following a board meeting Tuesday, YRDSB spokesperson Licinio Miguelo said in an emailed statement. Miguelo said the school board would not provide further comment on the matter.
Marshall could also not be reached by the National Post for comment.
A now-deleted Twitter account, @firstatheist, featuring a profile picture which students said appeared to be of Marshall, frequently tweeted in objection of hijabs, prayer and sharia law.
