  • An Ohio middle school teacher reportedly told a black student his friends would

Mason City Schools spokeswoman Tracey Carson on Friday said the teacher told Nathan: "Your classmates are exhausted of you costing them points".

"I told her, 'Next time you're frustrated are you going to call him a n*gger?'" Agee-Bell said.

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.

"I believe Mason is a community that is OK with the way it is", Agee-Bell said.

"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.

"He was in class and the teacher told him that if he didn't get on task his friends are going to Agee-Bell told ABC News".

To FOX, Agee-Bell added, "I don't know if she's racist, but I know that what she said is racist".

Agee-Bell, who serves on the Mason City Schools' Diversity Council, said Nathan is the only black student in the class. " The mother said she had confronted Thole and the teacher confessed to making the statement".

"I was just taken aback because I said, 'What you said is actually worse than what he said you said, '" she said.

The student's mother, Tanisha Agee-Bell, says she's not satisfied with the school district's punishment, calling it unclear.

She said as soon as she heard, she emailed Thole and later spoke to the teacher on the phone, demanding she apologize to her son in front of his class. "And clearly that happened here", Mason Schools spokeswoman Tracey Carson said.

Thole did not respond to the publication's request for comment. She said she has gotten her son removed from Thole's classroom.

"Growing Greatness Together is our district's vision", the district said in a statement.

Agee-Bell said she doesn't allow Nathan to play with Airsoft guns because she fears neighbors will call police, and she blames herself for moving to Mason. We have work to do.

"We will continue to invest in training and resources on culturally proficient practices for administrators, educators and classified staff members that lift up our district's values".

School officials confirmed that Renee Thole, who is white and teaches at a school in suburban Cincinnati, admitted making the racially insensitive remark to the 13-year-old student on December 4 at Mason Middle School, ABC News reported. And, even though this teacher did not set out to hurt a child - clearly that happened too.

Of Nathan, she said, "It was incredible he was courageous enough to confront the teacher". "Sometimes these are said out of genuine ignorance", Kist-Kline wrote. For example, some students contend that they are not being offensive if they say n***a vs. the n-word. We are not OK normalizing racial slurs.

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