A substitute teacher in Portland is being accused of abusing a student by hitting him upside the head with a clipboard and calling him the n-word. Now the mother of the former eighth-grade student has filed a $300,000 lawsuit against the Portland Public Schools, OregonLive reports.
According to the six-figure lawsuit filed last week in Multnomah County Circuit Court, Lamar Warren, was a 13-years-old student at the time the incident occurred at Martin Luther King Jr. School. Warren reported that in October 2017 a substitute teacher named Bruce Niemann hurled a racial slur at her son and hit him.
