A Black woman in Michigan has pulled her children out of school after she says officials failed to properly discipline a student who assaulted her son and called him the N-word.

Jazmine Gipson told Detroit's Fox Channel 2 the incident occurred Monday while her 6-year-old son was on his way home on a school bus. She says the other student grabbed her son, assaulted him, spit in his face and called him the N-word. When Gipson's 9-year-old daughter tried to intervene, the student allegedly called her the N-word, too.

In a separate incident that occurred in a classroom at Joseph M. Carkenord Elementary School in New Baltimore, Gipson said the student told her son to to "take whatever and shove it up his rectum."

"Gipson says the other boy is a student in her son's class and she wants the school district to place the child in another classroom and discipline him appropriately," the station reports. "She says neither has happened."

When Gipson contacted school officials, "They did not go into details about what this child's consequences were," she said. "I trusted it would be a great consequence. I also asked if an assembly could be done at the school to talk about other races, racial slurs and if parents could be involved."

Gipson said there is video of the school bus incident, but the superintendent of L'Anse Creuse Public Schools declined to release it to Channel 2. Gipson said other students also witnessed the racist assault.

The superintendent told the station that "all incidents between students are investigated, and the code of conduct is followed."

But Gipson said: "I don't feel a sense of urgency. It's just unsettling and I'm pulling my kids from the district."
