Once again, a high school in Woke Madison finds itself accused of racial segregation and its principal apologizing.
This week, the Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty sent a letter to Madison Metropolitan School District Superintendent Carlton Jenkins, warning about the practices of Madison West High School. According to the Milwaukee-based public interest law firm, WILL’s letter follows a school district email inviting high school families to discuss “all the police brutality and violence that is going on.”
The school email asserts it is “very necessary to have space for our families to discuss and process.” It then provides two different Zoom links; one for parents “of color,” the other for white parents.
“Racial segregation is never beneficial or benign. It is our hope that the leadership at MMSD take this opportunity to commit the school district to the principle of equality and end all racial segregation immediately,” said Dan Lennington, WILL deputy counsel.
