The Collin County chapter of the NAACP will host a 90-minute Zoom public teleconference Wednesday night to discuss bullying and discipline with the superintendent of Plano ISD in the wake of an incident a mother wants to be treated as a hate crime.
A group of classmates reportedly forced a Black student to drink a cup of urine while they recorded it, and they later shared that video with fellow students at the school.
The latest news from around North Texas.
The Plano Police Department is investigating the incident, and the Plano ISD has brought in a third-party to investigate claims from the mother that this same group of children had bullied her son previously at the school and that the district did little to intervene.
The talk on Wednesday, which runs from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., will be moderated by Sherasa Thomas of the Anti-Defamation League and will feature Plano ISD officials, including Superintendent Sara Bonser, Chief Operating Officer Theresa Williams and Assistant Superintendent Courtney Gober.
