Image result for n word photosDe’Ajhane Caldwell and Makayla Madkins complained last school year to Mira Loma High School officials after being called the N-word and other racially and sexually derogatory terms by a fellow student in Spanish class and online.

The Spanish teacher sent the boy to the office only once, according to a federal civil rights complaint filed by the National Center for Youth Law last month. He returned within five minutes. The girls showed a counselor screen shots of the online abuse. Their guardian complained to the vice principal.

The family asked that the boy be removed from class, said Chardonnay Madkins, a 2010 Mira Loma graduate and older sister of Makayla. They also asked that the school contact the boy’s family about his behavior. But he remained in the class and school officials didn’t offer additional information to the Madkins family, she said.
