teacher tells teen to sit your nappy-headed self downBrea Persley, 13, says that her science teacher told her to “sit your nappy-headed self down” in front of the whole class last week at Inglewood‘s Century Academy of Excellence, KTLA-TV in Los Angeles reports.

The teen’s teacher, Kelly Dempsey, called Brea’s family and apologized for the comment.

“Just to let you know. That’s just not me and it was not intentioned in a bad way and I know it came out wrong,” Dempsey said in a voice mail to the teen’s parents.

But the mom, Shronda Williams, says the principal  was less than apologetic.

Shronda says when she called the principal, Giselle Edman, to follow-up with a meeting, she told her that the teacher was right to call Brea “nappy” and that “bad things need to happen to mean kids.”

Edman then expelled Brea from school because the mother “scolded the principal.” Brea’s family did admit that the teen was cited for tardiness and gum-chewing. She also was involved in a fight on campus last year. Brea’s family plans on filing a complaint with the school’s accrediting institution.

But the problem is that Century Academy Of Excellence is a charter school and only answer to entities that accredit them or legal action. A representative from the California Department Of Education says charter schools operate by their own rules, though they are public.
