Agreed - it's not diversity until I see dwarfs, people that marry inanimate objects, at least one crazy cat lady with a shopping trolley, robots, blow-up partners, that dude that eats planes and bikes and the bloke that has more holes in his face than a sieve?
The results had been withheld immediately after the election because the principal felt that the winners weren't diverse enough. We've learned that the majority of the winners were white, despite the fact that the student body is 80% students of color.
The voting was held Oct. 10, but the principal sent an email to parents on Oct. 14 saying the results would not be released because the candidates that were elected as a whole do not represents the diversity that exists at the school.
The email went on to say they were thinking of ways to value the students who won, while increasing the diversity of the group.
According to Principal Lena Van Haren, Everett Middle School has a diverse student body. She said 80 percent of students are students of color and 20 percent are white, but the election results did not represent the entire study body.
“That is concerning to me because as principal I want to make sure all voices are heard from all backgrounds,” Van Haren said.
