An Inclusive Litany

9/23/02

Stephanie Bell, a fourth-grade teacher at Mary C. Williams Elementary School in Wilmington, North Carolina, received a formal reprimand after a parent complained of her use of the word "niggardly" to describe a literary character in class. The Wilmington Star-News reports that the state teacher's union not only would not defend her, but told her not to comment on the incident to anyone.
