Sorry is Enough for Mississippi School Teacher to Stay in Classroom

TUPELO, Miss. – The Guntown Middle School teacher accused of making a racist remark toward students in the school’s cafeteria last month will keep her job at the school.

The parent of one child, Michelle Russell, had initially called for the teacher, who is white, to be fired.  She had said the teacher called the students “colored.”

Russell, the teacher, Lee County School District Superintendent Jimmy Weeks and the president of the local chapter of the NAACP recently resolved their differences,.

The teacher’s name, nor the disciplinary action taken will be made public.  However, NAACP leaders confirmed that Russell was satisfied with an agreement that included the teacher apologizing for her choice of words.
