Stephanie Bell, a fourth-grade teacher at Williams Elementary School, taught the word "niggardly" to her class last week in an effort to improve her students’ vocabularies.
Now, a parent wants her fired.
Although the word means stingy, Akwana Walker said it was inappropriate to use it because it sounds similar to a racial slur.
