Stockton teacher resigns after parents accuse her of writing N-word near student's picture

Lincoln Unified School District officials say they cannot comment on the specifics of the incident because it is related to student disciplinary records.

STOCKTON, Calif. — A Stockton teacher resigned from Lincoln Unified School District after facing pressure from parents accusing them of writing a racial slur near a student's picture.

School district officials announced Friday a Sierra Middle School dual-language program teacher stepped down. They are currently looking for a new teacher.

Students told officials they stumbled upon a seating chart with the N-word written in quotations near a student's picture.

"We're told... the seating chart is where the teacher uses to take her notes and notate points. From my understanding, she might have heard this kid say a form of that word and very casually notated it on her clipboard. But not in the same way he said it, in the form of a racial slur," mother of four Liz Manipol-Lee told ABC10 Thursday.

School district officials say they cannot comment on the specifics of the alleged incident because it involves student disciplinary records.
