Taunton School Cracks Down on Racial Slurs
After a parent reported that her son had been the victim of racial slurs and a physical assault at school, Bristol Plymouth Regional Technical School in Taunton says it has disciplined students involved. The school's superintendent has posted a letter on the school's website, bptech.org saying that incidents of racial slurs have been reported to the school.
The letter goes on to say that those students involved have been disciplined. Dr. Alexandre Magalhaes also says that any future incidents at the school will result in significant consequences.
The mother of the student who was victim of the slurs spoke to the Taunton Gazette about the incident. She said she informed the school of the incidents before something tragic happened.
