Madison Schools to Improve Response to Racial Incident

MADISON, WI (Ben Caxton) — Madison’s school superintendent says the district needs to improve its response to racial incidents. In an open letter, Superintendent Jennifer Cheatham called an incident at Whitehorse Middle School where a black student allegedly had her braids pulled out by a staff member ‘horrific’. She says that whatever police decide in the case, the school failed parents and students. Administrators will be creating a new system to report incidents of racism and discrimination and reviewing how they respond to those reports.
