Teacher who made lynching comment will undergo training

"I would say, yes the teacher did confirm she said that", Tracey Carson, a spokeswoman for the Mason School District, told ABC News.

"I told her, 'Next time you're frustrated are you going to call him a n*****?'"

Thole reportedly later apologized to the class for offending Nathan and stated that she did not have harmful intentions, but Agee-Bell is still pushing for change.

'For me, the issue that she said it, that's a problem, but that she didn't see anything wrong with that she said, that's a bigger problem'.

"You shared that you realized that you cannot take that moment back but can only strive to make it a teachable moment for you and the students with your actions", reads the letter of reprimand, which the school district released to ABC News.

"[My son told us] his teacher had told him that if he didn't get back on task, that his friends were going to lynch him, and we thought he must have misunderstood", Agee-Bell told WXIX FOX 19.

Nathan told the teacher, Renee Thole, that her comment was racist, and the teacher asked why he believed that. The teacher stopped just short of explaining to the majority-white class why what she said was problematic, however, according to his mother. "I still want her out of the classroom until she gets that training".

Agee-Bell said her son Nathan told her that his eighth-grade social studies teacher last month said he was not pulling his weight in classroom group work.

"I'm not saying that she should never go back to the classroom but until she can demonstrate that she understands the impact of the language she used and has had on my son, on his peers, and on our community, then she doesn't need to be in the classroom", Agee-Bell added. Thole could not be reached for comment.

Agee-Bell, a member of the school district's diversity committee, said Nathan waited about a week before telling her what occurred. She said she has gotten her son removed from Thole's classroom.

"Growing Greatness Together is our district's vision".

She said: "As educators, sometimes we mess up". And, even though this teacher did not set out to hurt a child - clearly that happened too.

The mother of a young black student is upset after a white teacher told him he might be lynched if he did not focus on classwork, reports say.

While Thole has not commented publicly, according to her incident summary she wrote that she made a comment "where I didn't stop and think before I spoke". For example, some students contend that they are not being offensive if they say n***a vs. the n-word.

Teens in nearby Kings, about a mile east of Mason, were banned from a youth basketball league this month for wearing jerseys with racial slurs printed on them for several weeks until a parent from an opposing team complained. Officials have pledged to continue providing cultural sensitivity training.

It's unknown if the teacher will face any other disciplinary action, local outlets reported.
