School Tutoring Program Excludes White Kids
A Colorado school principal is apologizing after he mailed parents a letter informing them that an after-school tutoring program was for non-whites only.
Andre Pearson, the principal at Mission Viejo Elementary School in Aurora, also left a voice mail message confirming that the program excluded whites.
“It’s focused for and designed for children of color,” Principal Pearson said in a voicemail to parent Nicole Cox. “If we have space for other kids who have needs, we can definitely meet those needs.”
