Students and advocacy groups in Richmond are accusing school administrators of unfairly disciplining black students, and students with disabilities. Two students and a local chapter of the NAACP filed a federal discrimination complaint against Richmond Public Schools Wednesday.
JR is a rising 8th grader in Richmond Public Schools. He’s black and has emotional disabilities. Most of the time he’s in a special education class.
Last year, he left his classroom looking for a teacher. A security officer approached him.
