Officials say on Thursday a student-teacher at Nashville Elementary School was dismissed over a black history month lesson.
Metro Nashville Public Schools says she gave a lesson on the Willie Lynch speech from 1712 to fourth graders.
Lynch was a British slave owner, who was invited to Virginia to teach his methods on controlling slaves.
The school district says the lesson wasn’t age appropriate for the fourth graders.
The student-teacher was removed after teaching it to two classes.
The supervising teacher has been placed on administrative leave pending an investigation by the school district.
