COLUMBUS, Ga. — A Georgia school district will not publicly disclose disciplinary action taken against a teacher accused of using a racial slur in the presence of elementary school students.
Local news outlets report the parents of the fourth-grade girl targeted spoke at a Muscogee County School Board meeting Monday night and called for the Reese Road Leadership Academy teacher to be fired. The teacher wasn’t publicly identified.
Nathan and Equisha Frazier said their daughter reported Sept. 7 to her homeroom teacher that a student made offensive remarks to her and another black student, to which the teacher said “at least she didn’t refer to you as” the slur.
Board Chair Pat Hugley Green said the district didn’t condone the behavior. Superintendent David Lewis said policy barred disclosing disciplinary action or other consequences.
