New York - Discrimination Claims Against East Ramapo School District Found Valid By U.S. DOE
East Ramapo, NY - Just two months after a monitor was put in place to examine charges of racial discrimination levied against the East Ramapo School District, the U.S. Department of Education has concluded that the charges are founded.
LOHUD.com (http://lohud.us/1kXNUpY) reports that as a result of the DOE’s findings, a monitor from the department’s Office of Civil Rights (OCR) will remain in place to oversee the implementation of a 12-step plan agreed to last month by East Ramapo officials.
The DOE halted its investigation based on East Ramapo’s willingness to enter into the 12-step plan agreement.
The OCR fired off a letter on Tuesday to NAACP President Willie Trotman assuring that its inquiry will be resumed if East Ramapo fails to comply with term of the agreement.
