East Ramapo Board Meeting Packed with Protestors

Parents, students, and activists attended the East Ramapo School District’s board meeting on Tuesday night to express concern on the issue of discrimination in the district. In August Superintendent Joel Klein made remarks that the large amounts of immigrant students entering the student body is responsible for the high dropout rate. At Tuesday night’s meeting hundreds of parents arrived with signs, many demanding that the Superintendent resign. On Friday Klein released a letter to the district, apologizing for offending anyone with his statements and he repeated the apology last night, though protestors stated they will be attending board meetings until they see a sufficient change.
