A substitute who was teaching in a Caledonia, Michigan school is accused of using racial
slurs toward students in a classroom.

Carri Briggs says her children were in their sixth-grade classroom at Kraft Meadows Middle School when the incident happened.

"You could tell that they were upset and distraught about it that all if this had happened at school," Briggs said.

Briggs said her kids, and their 11- and 12-year-old classmates, say they saw the substitute teacher single out a few students, separate them from the other students and verbally berate them.

"The kids that were singled out and had to endure this, it's devastating for them. I can't even imagine what they're going through," Briggs said.

The substitute allegedly used the N-word to refer to a student and also allegedly made disparaging religious and cultural remarks to other students.
