Students at a Fort Worth, Texas elementary school say a music teacher called the class stupid and then separated black and white students. Speaking to a CBS 11 News reporter, parent Sandra Lee, whose child attends Hazel Harvey Peace Elementary School, said her daughter explained to her that the music teacher then told the black students, “I know where y’all are from,” adding that he could somehow tell that the black children don’t “get punished at home.” Some students also say they were made to leave the classroom. 

Parents say that school administrators never informed them about the incident involving the teacher last Friday—who remains anonymous. Lee approached administrators on Monday, and was told they were looking into what happened.
