Channelview — A Houston-area school district says it no longer employs a teacher who gave a student a mock award naming her "most likely to become a terrorist".

The Channelview Independent School District disclosed in a statement issued on Tuesday that it had parted with the junior high school teacher who gave the award to a 13-year-old girl and other mock awards to other students.

The tersely worded statement said simply, "We have concluded our investigation and the teacher responsible is no longer employed by the district."

Channelview is about 25km east of Houston.
