Craig and Kelly Robinson allege that a private school in Milwaukee expelled their two young sons after the parents raised concerns about racial and socio-economic bias at the school.
Craig and Kelly Robinson claim in a 25-page lawsuit filed in a Wisconsin court on Monday that the University School of Milwaukee kicked out their two kids, aged 11 and 9, as retaliation for the parents filing racist complaints against the school, said in a report.
Craig Robinson claimed, “They retaliated against two little lads.”
According to Fox 6, the Robinsons also submitted two complaints with the institution in January and March of 2021, expressing concerns about racist attitudes in virtual classroom assignments.
“This all started when we saw what was happening in the classroom due to COVID,” Craig Robinson told Robin Roberts on “Good Morning America.” “There were several instances of racial and ethnic stereotyping in actual assignments. The usage of the term ‘plantation’ and similar terms.”
“In addition to racial and ethnic prejudices, there was insensitivity to financial position, as well as a disrespect for the students who weren’t physically present in the classroom,” Robinson continued.
The Robinsons claim to have made two reports, one in January 2021 and the other in March 2021, using the “Bias Incident Reporting System.” They claim that the school took no action until informing them that their fifth-grade kid had been refused re-enrollment in April 2021. In June 2021, their third-grade student was also denied re-enrollment.
Both children were “model students,” according to the lawsuit, who “meet and surpassed academic and social goals” established by the school.
Craig Robinson explained TMJ4, “I believed their biased incident system was a method for them to help in altering the culture and knowing that there are prejudices because there are individuals who are reporting them.” “In the end, it was used against us, and now I’ve found that [USM] no longer has a bias incident reporting system.”
