Segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever, says school principal (not quite in those words):
A school principal said no white children were allowed at an after-school tutoring program, and now some parents call it discrimination.
The principal at Mission Viejo Elementary in Aurora sent a letter telling parents the program is only for students of color. Parents CBS4 talked with said they were shocked to see, in this day and age, what they consider to be segregation.
(I love how agnostic the article is on the question of whether this is discrimination or segregation. The parents say it is, the article tells us, but we won’t.)
The principal later left a voice mail for one of the white parents saying they might be able to squeeze in some help for her kid too. A quote from the voice mail:
It’s focused for and designed for children of color, but certainly, if we have space for other kids who have needs, we can definitely meet those needs.
First come the children of color — then your kid . . . you know, if there’s room.
