The outraged mom instructed WSB-TV that principal Sharyn Briscoe, who can be black, knowledgeable her that college students had been being separated by race to present them extra alternatives.
The school had two lessons for black college students and 6 for white college students, Posey stated.
Posey claims she solely came upon concerning the scenario after the principal stated her daughter couldn’t be positioned in a sure instructor’s class.
“She said that’s not one of the black classes, and I immediately said, ‘What does that mean?’ I was confused. I asked for more clarification. I was like, ‘We have those in the school?’ And she proceeded to say, ‘Yes. I have decided that I’m going to place all of the black students in two classes’,” Posey stated.
The mom stated she insisted her daughter be positioned in a white class however the principal stated it meant the lady can be remoted.
“I explained to her she shouldn’t be isolated or punished because I’m unwilling to go along with your illegal and unethical practice,” Posey stated.
The mom stated she has “lost sleep” making an attempt to work out why the school thought it was a good suggestion.
“It was just disbelief that I was having this conversation in 2020 with a person that looks just like me – a black woman,” Posey stated.
“It’s segregating classrooms. You cannot segregate classrooms. You can’t do it.”
The Atlanta Public Schools district confirmed it had investigated the allegations made by Posey and that applicable actions had been taken.
A district spokesperson wouldn’t elaborate on what these actions had been.
“Atlanta public schools does not condone the assigning of students to classrooms based on race,” an announcement from the district stated.
The district didn’t deny the allegations.
The Department of Education is presently working a separate investigation associated to Posey’s discrimination grievance.

In Virginia on Tuesday, a instructor broke down as she resigned in entrance of a Loudoun County School Board assembly as a result of she was sick of pushing their “highly politicized agendas to our most vulnerable constituents.”
Laura Morris, who stated she has taught at Lucketts Elementary School in Leesburg for 5 years, defiantly declared: “I quit your policies, I quit your training, and I quit being a cog in a machine that tells me to push highly politicized agendas to our most vulnerable constituents – children.”
The fifth grade instructor claimed the school had beforehand requested her and different staffers to not unfold dissenting views.
“Within the last year, I was in one of my so-called equity trainings that White, Christian, able-bodied females currently have the power in our schools and ‘this has to change,’” she instructed the board.
“Clearly, you’ve made your point. You no longer value me or many other teachers you’ve employed in this county. So since my contract outlines the power that you have over my employment in Loudoun County Public Schools, I thought it necessary to resign in front of you.”
