Seattle high school singles out black students to sign pledge to be better students
SEATTLE -- A school pledge created by the staff at one Seattle high school has parents and students upset. That’s because it only addressed the African-American students. The “Keepin’ it 100” covenant asked the African-American students to pledge they would be better students. Franklin High junior Niya Thomas often shares her feelings with mom Neffertiti Thomas, including how she felt about a school covenant that had been given only to black students to sign.
