Former teacher files racial discrimination lawsuit against Arvada’s Faith Christian Academy

A former teacher at an Arvada Christian school has filed a racial discrimination lawsuit, accusing Faith Christian Academy of wrongful termination after he spoke up about what he described as a culture of racial harassment among students and staff.

Attorneys on behalf of Gregg Tucker filed the lawsuit in Denver District Court Wednesday after Tucker received a right to sue notice from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, a statement from Alyn-Weiss & Associates read.

Tucker, who taught at the private school for 12 years, was terminated on Feb. 26, 2018. In the lawsuit, Tucker claims his desire to have a student dialogue about racism led to his termination.

Tucker claims in the lawsuit that his motivation to organize a symposium on racial discrimination and harassment came after witnessing or being the target racial harassment at the school. The teacher said he was derided in the past by students for being the father of a black daughter and referred to by students as a “n—- father,” the lawsuit read.
