A black Atlanta mother has filed a federal lawsuit against a black principal and public school after her daughter and other students were separated by race and then taught in separate classrooms.
Kila Posey filed her complaint against Mary Lin Elementary School in which she said Principal Sharyn Briscoe informed her that she instituted the segregated classroom concept because she felt that would be best for students.
Posey, who is vice president of operations for the local Parent Teachers Association (PTA) said she first learned about the segregated classrooms when she called Briscoe to request that her daughter be placed in a certain classroom with a specific teacher. Briscoe responded by informing Posey that wouldn’t work out because that teacher’s classroom was not one that had been established for black students.
“[The principal] said that’s not one of the black classes, and I immediately said, ‘What does that mean?’ I was confused,” Posey recalled.
“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 continued.
