AKRON, OH (WOIO) -

School board members voted Monday evening to fire a teacher over his racist Facebook rants.

David Spondike taught music at Firestone High School.

He made the posts on his personal page in October and the board terminated him last December; however, Spondike continued his appeal rights.

An appointed referee then investigated and supported the board's recommendation.

Akron School Board Members had to vote last night to support the referee's decision.

Spondike had been with the district for 15 years.
