(WMC) - Shelby County Schools Superintendent Dorsey Hopson said he was outraged by the principal caught on tape calling students the n-word.

Hopson said it was disgusting the first time he heard the recording of former Florida-Kansas Elementary School principal Tracie Boyd Greer, but he does not believe the comments are indicative of any district-wide behavior.

The audio was recorded as Greer spoke with staff members about upcoming TCAP testing.

"What I'm saying is, we got to get us a plan in place," she said in the audio recording. "Get you 10 damn folks, screw down your damn kids. Make sure you got them ------- tight. You understand me? Get them 10 ------- tight."

"I heard it, I immediately got our labor relations person on the phone and said this person cannot go back to school, we have to investigate," he said.

Hopson said a teacher's union representative shared the audio with his office, which was originally leaked by a Florida-Kansas Elementary faculty member, who also shared it with WMC Action News 5.

Greer was supposedly discussing a plan to ensure 10 students per class passed the TCAP test by any means necessary.

"But the language that was used to describe these babies was even more deplorable to me than the possible discussion of whatever she was talking about," said Hopson.

Greer has yet to comment despite WMC Action News 5's requests.
