Despite promises, California schools don’t seem to learn lesson on racism

December 9, 2018

A federal administrative complaint was filed last month on behalf of 10 black students who have endured a racially hostile environment at Visalia Unified School District schools in California.

Last spring, a black senior at Redwood High School in Visalia (Tulare County) was called “n—” and other racially derogatory names by white students.

A junior at the same school, who played on the football team, was told by a white teammate that he needed to “act more hood” because he was black.

A black student at Linwood Elementary School was suspended for defending himself after a white student spit water in his face.
