OH teacher accused of telling black student he might be lynched

OH teacher accused of telling black student he might be lynched

"For me, that's enough for her, as a social studies teacher especially, to be removed from the classroom", Agee-Bell said. "I was just taken aback, because I said, 'What you said is actually worse than what he said you said'".

"And I'm not saying she should never go back in the classroom, but until she can demonstrate that she understands what the impact of the language that she used and what she did can have, has had on my son, has on his peers and is having on our community, then she doesn't need to be in the classroom". "When she said that, he said back to her, 'That's racist.′ She approached him and said, 'Why do you think that's racist?"

She said: "As educators, sometimes we mess up".

Carson told ABC News Thole will not be removed from her job, but the school added a letter of reprimand to her personnel file.

Between 1882 and the height of the civil rights movement almost a century later, more than 3,440 African-Americans were lynched in the USA, according to the NAACP's website. She said she wasn't convinced that Thole, who is in her 30s, fully understands how offensive her comments were. She acknowledged her son Nathan, 13, was talking in class at the time his teacher made the remark, Cincinnati.com reported but felt her response was totally out of line. It was fantastic that this young black man was fearless enough to confront his teacher when the incident happened.

Thole admitted she had acted out of frustration, and Agee-Bell agrees her son should have been focused on his work - but she said the explanation was completely unsatisfactory. She said that conversation lasted five minutes.

Agee-Bell told Fox 19 she was shocked.

"I want the district to take ownership of this and to work to make the environment better for all students", Agee-Bell said.

Agee-Bell had previously met with district officials, including the superintendent, in December.

The incident involved a student named Nathan and occurred during a December class at a Mason City school.

"The hardest part is that even though he knows he did nothing wrong, he still is punished because he lost opportunity with his friends", Agee-Bell said.

And days later, Mason Schools officials are apologizing for a white teacher's "lynching" remark to an African-America middle school student and promising changes. School employees tweeted about the event using the hashtag, #MasonShines. "And when it's not a mistake, misstep, or uh-oh, it has to be dealt with like what it is. racist behavior", Agee-Bell wrote on Facebook.

She said two other children with parents on the council have experienced similar racially-charged situations in the last few months. "Clearly, that was the case here", the district said.

News of her son's experience came only days after a neighboring youth basketball team in Warren County was kicked out of its league for putting racist names on the back of their jerseys.

Kings officials said as of Thursday he has yet to submit a written resignation letter to the board, which next meets at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Kings Education Center at 1797 King Ave. If asked to discuss her concerns privately, she says she will refuse.
