Lawsuit Alleges Racial Discrimination at Duluth Edison

The Duluth News Tribune wrote an article this morning detailing a case brought by Nichols Kaster on behalf of three African-American students, who have suffered racial discrimination at Duluth Edison Charter Schools.

The article quotes partner Rebekah L. Bailey as explaining: "This is not just about one young kid being inappropriate or mean to another young kid. The troublesome behavior keeps going after that."  She continued: "We are talking about the failure of the school to take this seriously or to treat kids fairly or retaliate against African American students who complain too much about the way they are treated. I would say that's the crux of the problem here is the school's response to this behavior."
