A Vineland teacher has been removed from her classroom, and an inquiry into her future is underway after she made racially insensitive comments related to Dulce Alavaz, the 5-year-old missing Bridgeton girl.

Jennifer Hewitt Bishop, a resource instructor, reportedly responded to a Facebook post about the Amber Alert sent out for Dulce, questioning the behavior of the child's mother by writing: "They're Mexican, it's their culture. They don't supervise their children like we do.", according to Patch.com.
