COTTAGE GROVE, Minn. (WCCO) -- Some Twin Cities students walked out of class Monday after they say a teacher used a racial slur.

Students at Park High School in Cottage Grove stood outside with signs to protest what they call "countless racially-motivated incidents" by teachers and staff. One student told WCCO a teacher recently called another student the n-word.
