A student-teacher at a Nashville elementary school has been dismissed over a black history month lesson.

Metro Nashville public schools says she gave a lesson on the willie lynch speech from 17-12 to fourth graders.

Lynch was a British slave owner — who was invited to Virginia to teach his methods on controlling slaves.

The school district says the lesson wasn’t age-appropriate for the fourth graders.

The student-teacher was removed after teaching it to two classes.

The supervising teacher has been placed on administrative leave pending an investigation by the school district.
