A southwest Ohio teacher who allegedly responded after a black high school freshman said he wanted to become president that the nation doesn't need another black president has been disciplined.
School officials say the white teacher allegedly responded "we don't need another black president" when the black student told him his ambition early in December.
Voigt reportedly told school officials he was misquoted. He has taught at Fairfield since 2000. A message was left for him Friday.
