Emily Mais, a former assistant principal at Agnor-Hurt Elementary School in Virginia, has taken legal action against the school district, claiming she was forced to resign due to harassment from colleagues following her use of the term “colored people” during mandatory anti-racism training, Your Content has learned.

Mais filed the lawsuit last Thursday, asserting that the school board failed to address the bullying she faced, including being referred to as a “white racist b**ch.”

According to Mais, the incident occurred during a mandatory anti-racism training session where she voiced her concerns about what she perceived as discrimination against white individuals.

She explains that her use of the term “colored people” was unintended and a result of a slip of the tongue.

The training session featured Glenn Singleton, the author of Courageous Conversations About Race, which has garnered criticism for its inclusion of Critical Race Theory (CRT).

Following the incident, Mais alleges that she faced ongoing bullying from her colleagues, with administrators failing to intervene and allowing a hostile work environment to persist.

She highlights the detrimental impact this had on her job and ultimately led to her resignation in September.

The lawsuit brings attention to the broader issue of ensuring a supportive and inclusive environment within educational institutions while also addressing concerns about the handling of anti-racism training programs.

The legal proceedings will shed light on the alleged mistreatment faced by Emily Mais and the school board’s responsibility in addressing such incidents, according to The Daily Mail.
