It baffles me. I just don't get it.

I think the principal handled things as well as he could given the information we've seen.

/sarcasm. Paging blco and oneil!

Edit: You got me laugh.gif

laugh.gif How did u not read that and not detect sarcasm.

But I find it ironic that while they're hating her, she keeps flourishing and will succeed while they struggle. This country has bred some sensitive ppl and w/ the fear of being publicly ridiculed and other measures, nothing will be done.

The sad thing about it is, by rule, she's supposed to come out on top since she's getting the high grades and focused on her education, however, do to her being a woman AND black, she'll be knocked back to make room for the hatin kids who only achieve some of what she has.

Get it straight, man...the broken families create criminals, not victims...although the race baiters love to conflate the two in order to suit their personal and political agendas.

 

This incident is apparently the fault of cruel kids and an administration who is playing the CYA game as usual.

 

If I were that kid's parents, I'd be suing the **** outta the school.  Let the truth come out for the world to see.

Where are the comments by the parents of the other kids?  Surely you're not suggesting that all the other parents are racist, are you?

The article doesn't say it was the same person who did both, so there could be more than one racist ******* in the class.

Parents of bullied student blast school, NAACP

CONCORD BULLYING ALLEGATION

GOSHEN — The parents of a former Concord Intermediate School student targeted by a racist note plan to pursue a meeting with Concord Community Schools officials to address their concerns.

In a public statement emailed to several news organizations Thursday afternoon, Avonn Pratcher and Gina Neely, the parents of 11-year-old NyZeria Neely, blasted Concord Community Schools for repeatedly ignoring their requests for a meeting to discuss a bullying incident that occurred last month.

On March 16, Neely reported to school personnel that she found a note in her locker inscribed with the N-word.

Neely, an African American student, reported the incident to a teacher and school Principal Chad Stamm that day, Gina Neely said. NyZeria Neely and several of her siblings have since transferred to Elkhart Community Schools.

The incident remains under investigation by the Elkhart County Sheriff’s Department, school officials said last week.

The family also stated that a recent conversation between school corporation representatives and the Elkhart County NAACP did not satisfactorily address the situation.

Jason Moreno, who works as the Elkhart neighborhood organizer of LaCasa, Inc., has been serving as an advocate for the family independent of LaCasa and assisted them in drafting Thursday’s statement. Moreno has stated he plans to run for an at-large seat on the Elkhart City Council.

The statement said the family is making a public statement to “clarify” their position and “show the public we are willing to meet.”

Concord schools Superintendent Wayne Stubbs stated in an email Thursday that he had been out of town for spring breaksince last Friday and had just returned.

“If they have contacted my office since that time I have not been to the office to check phone calls,” Stubbs said in the email. “I am happy to help coordinate a meeting with our administrators and the parents.”

Prior meetings

Concord Community Schools and NAACP leaders met March 24 in response to the racial slur directed toward Neely.

After the meeting Ron Davis, president of the Elkhart County NAACP, said he was “pretty satisfied” with the process school leaders follow in addressing bullying incidents. The leaders agreed to conduct diversity training with the administrators and the new superintendent when he or she arrives. Stubbs will retire from the school corporation June 30.

In Thursday’s statement, Neely and Pratcher said the NAACP was not asked to represent the family.

“It was not the place of the NAACP to determine if the situation is satisfied when they are not the victims or our representatives. The NAACP only asked us to let them represent us after they intervened on behalf of our concerns and began discussions with the schools, and we declined their offer,” the statement said.

In addition, Neely and Pratcher said the school corporation has “done absolutely nothing to address the situation surrounding our child’s (NyZeria Neely’s) experience...” and added that the school leaders have not returned repeated requests for a meeting.

“Our emails, unanswered for days, remained unanswered while we witnessed the press getting replies from emails they had sent the same day,” the statement said. “It is perfectly clear that Concord Schools have invested their time in false appearances and avoiding our family: Our child was bullied and they swept it under the rug, and we can document our position thoroughly.”

Thursday’s statement also explained that the American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana has been involved with the conversation, but cannot further assist because NyZeria Neely has been transferred to Elkhart Community Schools.

Moreno said Thursday he could not clarify why the ACLU could not continue to be involved and attempts to contact ACLU Legal Director Ken Falk were unsuccessful by press time.

"Carrying a handmade poster reading “STOP BULLYING OUR CHILDREN”, the parents arrived at the school to confront administrators. Instead of addressing their concerns, school administrators called in the Elkhart County Sheriff’s Department to issue a no-trespass order against the parents."

 Concord Community Schools partners with NAACP to promote diversity following racist note

The organizations will discuss race-related topics such as continuing efforts to recruit staff members of various ethnic backgrounds, as well as ongoing diversity training for its existing staff, during their quarterly meetings.

 

Officials from Concord Community Schools will begin meeting with the Elkhart County NAACPseveral times per year for discussions about race-related topics facing schools, according to a press release from the district.

 

The organizations share a long-standing partnership, but the recent collaboration was sparked by reports of racist notes found on and in the locker of 11-year-old Concord Intermediate School student NyZeria Neely.

 

The sixth-grader returned to her locker between classes Monday, March 16, to find a note reading: “(N-word)s don’t belong!!!” It was the third time Neely was the target of racist comments or notes in a three-week span, she said.

 

The school launched an investigation with the help of the Elkhart County Sheriff’s Department, and administrators met with NAACP leaders following the incident.

 

NyZeria’s parents, Gina Neely and Avonn Pratcher, were not satisfied with the district’s response to the notes and called for quicker, more aggressive action.

 

Although the district cannot comment specifically on the incident because of federal and state privacy laws, Concord Superintendent Wayne Stubbs released the following statement about the note:

 

“Concord schools find these situations to be very offensive and unacceptable in our schools. Our building administrators take them seriously, as student safety is always our number one priority. These situations are investigated thoroughly and many times include our school resource officer, as well. Appropriate consequences are administered when the situation is resolved.”

 

The district said in a later press release that a number of factors can affect the length of an investigation, including the severity of the alleged offense and necessity for law enforcement involvement.

 

During the initial meeting with the NAACP, Concord administrators discussed ongoing efforts to deter bullying and reviewed policies, procedures and timelines for investigating reports of student conflicts or bullying.

 

The school district follows several practices to prevent bullying, as required by law:

 

  • Report the number of bullying incidents to the Indiana Department of Education.
  • Provide regular training to all school employees and volunteers who have direct, ongoing contact with students.
  • Provide age-appropriate, research-based instruction to students.
  • Adopt discipline rules that must include detailed procedures for an expedited investigation of bullying.

 

School counselors also address students at all grade levels to teach them not to bully and how to respond if they are a victim. 

 

The NAACP traditionally engages with schools to provide education on diversity training, assist with recruiting minority teachers and administrators, engage students in learning about diversity, and facilitate resolution if discrimination concerns arise.

 

These topics were discussed during the initial meeting between the NAACP and Concord, and they will be addressed in future meetings, according to the release.

 

Concord schools have been actively working to recruit staff of various ethnic backgrounds — only 12 teachers, or 4 percent, are from a minority group — and providing existing staff with diversity training.

 

“Ensuring a positive learning environment in a diverse student population is an everyday reality for staff, administrators and our community,” Stubbs said in the press release.

 

The district’s student body is made up of nearly 50 percent ethnic minorities, according to the Indiana Department of Education:

 

  • White: 51.6 percent
  • Hispanic: 30.9 percent
  • Asian: 0.9 percent
  • Black: 9.6 percent
  • Multiracial: 6.9 percent

 

Local NAACP President Ron Davis said he was satisfied with the outcome of the initial meeting.

 

“We made some positive steps for the community,” he said in the release. “We know that Concord administrators want all kids to be safe and are willing to do whatever is necessary to make that happen.”
