WATCH: This Mother Wants to Know Why a Black Principal Segregated Elementary School Students By Race

A black mother wanted her child to be placed in the classroom of a teacher she thought would be a good fit. She told the principal, but the principal said that wouldn’t work.

Why? Kila Posey asked the principal, Sharyn Briscoe, the same question. Briscoe told her that the class she wanted for her child wasn’t one of the “black classes.” Black classes?

Posey asked for clarification. Briscoe said she decided to place the black students in two classes and white students in six classes. Posey insisted that her child be placed in a class with white students, explaining that her child would be isolated.

“First, it was just disbelief that I was having this conversation in 2020 with a person that looks just like me, a black woman,” Posey said. “It’s segregating classrooms. You cannot segregate classrooms. You can’t do it.”

Posey filed a discrimination complaint with the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights. So far, Briscoe has not explained why she broke federal law. Watch the clip below for more.

    This is 2021.
    In which century is this principal living?
    I am a retired Teacher, having spent part of my 30 years in education
    in Georgia. Glad to be out of the Georgia Public School system.

  2. Based on your other article, thought you wanted to get rid of protected classes like race and sexual orientation? Not anymore?

  3. The mother can’t believe what she was hearing in 2020. I can’t believe that I am reading about it. This dangerous INSANITY must stop. Thank God she took action. It is sad and mind boggling that she had to. EVERYTHING MLK and the true civil rights movement fought and DIED for, is now being torn apart by CRT and the woke culture. We WERE making progress. Perfect yet? Done yet? A resounding NO to both, but the WRONG turn is being made by so many, especially those in education leadership positions. This falling off the narrow path, has to be halted. They have left God behind and their actions reflect it. Keep up the good work, Star and all at BCN. I will send you some more $$$ soon.
