“She should not be in the classroom,” Tanisha Agee-Bell said of the white middle school teacher in Mason.
Mason City Schools spokeswoman Tracey Carson on Friday said the teacher told Nathan: “Your classmates are tired of you costing them points.
Carson told CNN on Friday that the teacher “was reprimanded and is required to have cultural proficiency training.”
CNN is not naming the Mason Middle School teacher because there is no evidence she has been investigated by law enforcement.
Agee-Bell, who serves on the Mason City Schools’ Diversity Council, said Nathan is the only black student in the class.
