A high level official in Richmond did something surprising this week. Superintendent of Schools Dana Bedden apologized for an incident that occurred even before he took the job.
The assembly at Huguenot High School began like a pep rally, but it quickly took on a serious tone as Superintendent Dana Bedden recalled how – in 2013 – all Hispanic students were summoned to the cafeteria. Jonthan Villatoro was one of them.
“In the past there had been several conflicts between the African-American students and the Hispanic students that ended in pretty bad fights.”
