Boston Public schools are announcing the results of an internal investigation following student allegations of racism at the Boston Latin School.
There was one instance in this review that proves the school did violate policy, however no one will be losing their job over it.
The school’s headmaster, Lynne Mooney Teta, will keep her job.
The internal review of the school stated they did not properly respond to a student’s racial slur in one reported incident.
This review cam after two students started a social media campaign using the hashtag #BlackatBLS to raise awareness to what they believe was the school’s failure to address racism.
In December, students dressed in all black in silent protest.
The district released its findings Thursday night after looking at racial incidents dating from 2004 to Jan. 2016. In total there were seven incidents reported, and only one where the school is accused of not adequately investigating.
Students met with the school board in December and since then the school came up with their own six-point plan to address issues that happen in the school or online.
