It is crucial that school districts, including Elk River stand by their BIPOC students just as they stand by their White students. To continue minimizing, dismissing and allowing continued hate, harassment and targeting of students of color should not be taking place in an educational institution. Systemic Racism is not acceptable in schools, period. Do better Elk River, do better.

I graduated from ERHS in 2009 and and it’s about time that these issues of race and discrimination were addressed head on- I hope to see the school and district make concrete plans for change.

This has been an issue for a while - It's unacceptable to hear that this is still an issue 15 years after I've graduated. That's an entire generation worth of being asleep at the wheel.

I am a former ERHS student and am consistently ashamed of my high school. I witnessed many of the aforementioned behaviors including faculty making Black students argue on behalf of slavery. This school administration and many of it’s faculty have shown flagrant racist disregard for the opinions and concerns of BIPOC students in favor of currying praise and support from racist white parents. This needs to change.

I signed this petition because it is INEXCUSABLE that ANY student should have to put up with this derogatory/threatening/racist/violent behavior at ANY time! How and why this is allowed to continue is INCOMPREHENSIBLE!!

In my almost 30 years of teaching in this district, there were many pledges to increase equity and inclusion, but little concrete follow-through from top administration on down. It's time.
