Black teacher resigns, blames racist officials - VPR

The Springfield school district is Vermont’s ground zero for school/race news. As school officials root out racist books in school libraries and back off policies aimed at giving parents more say in controversial content, a black teacher has resigned and is blaming racism by school officials.

"Once Johnson started working in Springfield, he said he encountered microaggressions and racism that made him think that Springfield might not be the best place for him to work. He said some his emails were copied to the superintendent, when other staff members didn't receive the same attention. And he says his professionalism was questioned during a presentation he was scheduled to make."
