A local school district says it’s a night for African American Parents to ask questions and be informed about their child’s education. But one guest speaker is there for something completely different.
The Parkrose School District Website bills the March 20th meeting as African American Parent Night and says if you are an African American parent or have an African American student, you are invited to attend an evening with the Superintendent. But it wont be just the Superintendent there. A representative of Cover Oregon will also be making a 45 minute presentation during the 1 1/2 hour meeting. The superintendent’s office told KXL everyone is welcome when we asked if “white” parents can come to the meeting. We then contacted Superintendent Doctor Karen Gray by e-mail to ask more in-depth questions, she replied by e-mail saying “you should attend the meeting”.
This story is stirring up a lot of talk on the KXL Facebook page. So what do you think? Is this type of meeting the school district should be having? Sign on and give us your opinion.
