    A Kenosha Unified School District teacher is on paid leave pending an investigation into a video a student recorded of their teacher saying a racial slur, CBS58 reports.

    The video was recorded on November 29 at Bradford High School.

    Kristal Manthe’s son and sister are in the class, CBS58 reported. She said they told her a girl used the word towards another student in class, and that is when the teacher chimed in.

    “She brought up that when she was younger she had a nanny who was of color, and that people often called her nanny that so she felt comfortable using that type of language,” Manthe said. A father of a student in the class said he reported it to the principal the day it happened, but no action was taken at that time.
