In a podcast from Feb. 26, Volitich agreed with a guest who criticized the idea that “a kid from Nigeria and a kid who came from Sweden are supposed to learn exactly the same” and have the “same IQ.” She also argued that "science" has proved some races are smarter than others.
Volitich was temporarily removed from the classroom following an investigation with school district employees.
The resignation will not be finalized until it is accepted by the school board, per school board policy. The approval is part of the school board agenda set for April 10.
