Student may file discrimination lawsuit against school district after expulsion
Student Maya Oquendo tells her story about getting into a fight at lunchtime to CBS2Chicago. Maya is black and Puerto Rican and her scufflee was white. The allegation here is that the school district Glenbard North is more willing to give harsh penalties to minority students than white students. Maya got expelled as was noted the other scufflee was only suspended five days and is back in school. I wonder what's up, but before you come to your conclusion check out the report by CBS2Chicago.
