BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — A Brunswick County mom says a teacher mistreated her son in class. She thinks he will have to live with the consequences for the rest of his life.

The mother of the third grade student at Jesse Mae Monroe Elementary School in Brunswick County says she was appalled when she found out her son was not allowed to go to the bathroom and then had an accident in class.

“They did nothing to this teacher,” Latoria Brown said. “Nothing. That’s what I want: her removed; and I want justice for my son.”

Brown says her eight-year-old son was not allowed to go to the restroom October 6, so he defecated in his pants in class. Brown says when she found out about the incident, she went to the school, but did not get much of a response.

“I never got a simple apology. No teacher. No principal. Nobody apologized for the situation. That’s what really made me upset about the situation,” Brown said. “All I wanted was a simple apology, but it didn’t go that way, so I had to go further.”

Brown says after she found out how her son was treated by the teacher, she said she couldn’t just let it go. She thinks it may be racially motivated, and the Brunswick County Ministers Alliance agrees. The group says there was a similar situation between a black teacher and a white student back in 2008 that was handled immediately. Brown says she thinks because her son is black and his teacher is white that the process is moving at a slower pace.

“I don’t wanna say that it’s a black and white thing. I don’t really wanna say that, but they’ve been going on and on trying to sweep it up underneath the rug,” Brown said. “It wasn’t like that the first time around, so why is it this way this time around?”

School district spokeswoman Jessica Swencki says that is not the case. Swencki says an investigation into the situation is underway. She says the board is having trouble, though, because brown will not allow her son to speak with investigators, which is keeping the school from moving forward with discipline.

Brown says she plans on sitting down with the school board and investigators with her son and her lawyer. She says she hopes to schedule a meeting with the board, so that they can move forward as soon as possible.

Brown’s son was initially removed from the class after the incident, but was put back in earlier this week.

From the story: “I don’t wanna say that it’s a black and white thing. I don’t really wanna say that, but they’ve been going on and on trying to sweep it up underneath the rug,” Brown said. “It wasn’t like that the first time around, so why is it this way this time around?”

and: “…the board is having trouble, though, because brown will not allow her son to speak with investigators, which is keeping the school from moving forward with discipline.”

So she is hindering the process and then complaining that it isn’t being handled quickly. And then to top it off with the race card. Class, pure class.

This sounds like a classical “Gotcha-Whitey” setup. So, has “Jay Lee Truth” has been watching this thing build up, and taking notes ? Give me a break.If they have backup colthes for this, it shows, its a common problem, for children, as it was when I was little, and it happened to my best friend, in 2nd grade.(45 years ago)
But, then again, who cares what the facts are? For some people, as long as they can get a white person, thats all that matters.
