Another family joins racial discrimination lawsuit against Duluth-Edison

DULUTH, MN– A fourth family has come forward in the racial discrimination lawsuit against Duluth-Edison schools.

The charter school has two campuses in Duluth: Raleigh and North Star.

One of the students attended Raleigh, a second transferred out.

The third student attends North Star, and the fourth child to come forward transferred out of North Star.

They’re in 1st grade, 2nd grade, 5th grade, and 7th grade.

You’ll recall this all started when the parents of three children of color filed a lawsuit alleging racial discrimination back in April.

It claims the students experienced racist, hurtful, and at times dangerous interactions with staff and students.

According to the amended complaint, the new family coming forward says shortly after starting school at North Star, their daughter began experiencing discrimination and harassment by white students and staff because of her race.

Duluth Edison is standing by its denial of any allegations of racial discrimination, according to an official response filed by the charter school in district court.

KBJR 6 reached out to Duluth-Edison for comment about the new allegations but did not receive a response as of news time.
