You have begun a major transition with the intent of improving the racial relationships between teachers and students at the Saghalie Middle School. A recent newspaper article revealed that a math teacher, who witnessed an attack on the student, allegedly singled out a Black female student by forcing her to sit at a desk positioned apart from her classmates on a daily basis. The teacher allegedly removed the student from her classroom and often disciplined the Black female student unfairly. The parent, Baker, believes the teacher was motivated by students race and sex. Additionally, the article stated, “Upon information and belief, [the teacher] was frequently punitive towards black/African-American girl students in her classroom, including M.B. by subjecting them to disproportionate discipline as compared to their male peers”. This published accusation will have a lasting effect on the perception of the Federal Way Public School.


The transition that you need can only be accomplished by promoting positive racial teacher student classroom relationships at the Saghalie Middle School. Otherwise, the alleged racial incident will have an impact on the school, students, and community. You will experience an increase in student fights because Black and White students will take sides which will lead to racial bullying. Some students will side with the teacher and other students will side with the students. This will cause tension in your school and eventually you will see children acting out resulting in student fights. You will also have an increase in student disciplinary infractions. Students will become disrespectful towards teachers and teachers will have to respond by submitting disciplinary referrals. Staff morale will also be at jeopardy. Many teachers will not be sure what is the right thing to do to ensure that they do not become part of a future lawsuit. This will create a classroom management challenge for teachers. This could hamper the academic achievement in the school for years to come too. This incident is going to hamper the culture of your school without the appropriate program.
