Southern Lehigh High School students have been subjected to classmates yelling gay slurs and the n-word in the halls, calling black students cotton pickers and using heil Hitler salutes.

Why? Is it false? I mean the OP could have used better wording, but it's a legit question, given how much TBT has praised the SLSD (which I happen to agree with).

Oh, I'm sorry if I gave the impression that this was a personal attack; it wasn't, and I trust TBT wasn't offended. But it is her district, and I'm sure she's as upset and bewildered as I am.

Read the article, especially after the first few paragraphs. The Principal is shedding light on a problem and letting the students know they will be held accountable for bad behavior. School code dictates that she cannot say what discipline was enacted. Better then covering stuff up and saying it's all fine. It's sad to say, but stupid, bad behavior is not new or especially "news."

This is way more than bad behavior and is certainly "news" given all of the racist propaganda coming out in schools nationwide. It also shows there is intolerance in at least the school district and the Lehigh Valley. I would hope the principal doesn't hide behind some "school code" nonsense too!

Saucon Valley parents want something done about racist behavior in schools - The Morning Call

Getting worse? Well, I did read that half a dozen (6) parents showed up to complain.

This is disgusting.
