Parents turn out in droves to discuss racism in Pittsford schools


“There’s an increase in the inappropriate language and behavior that’s going on in our schools,” parent Sareer Fazili said. “We’re not hearing or seeing any denials of the existence of this behavior.”

Others say the district is tone-deaf.

Parent Jerome Gilles said he was disappointed to see Black History Month projects meant to highlight the accomplishments of prominent African Americans include incorrect information – or depict Caucasians instead.

“I felt it was a missed opportunity for the school to reinforce their commitment to diversity inclusion: also, to educate the kids,” he said. More here.

Concerned parents want to make sure the district is inclusive towards all students.
