NAACP wants Boston Latin headmaster to step down in wake of racism incidents

The local NAACP is calling for change at Boston Latin School after alleged incidents of racism.

The NAACP wants the headmaster of the school, Lynne Mooney Teta, to step down, after a meeting discussing the lack of action by administration regarding racism at the school.

Two students presented Teta with a binder of incidents involving racism among students.

They also started a social media campaign to raise awareness to what they believed, was the school’s failure to address the incidents.

An internal review said there was only one incident that the school did no properly respond to a racial slur from one student to another.

They say there were more incidents than originally thought of the school not properly handling the allegations.
