Florida parents are calling out officials of Flagler County’s Bunnell Elementary School, following an assembly that reportedly singled out their Black students for low test scores!
According to WESH News, parents have stated that the school orchestrated an assembly that aimed to motivate Black students within the fourth and fifth grades by offering them gift cards to fast food restaurants.
Sources state that the students were pulled out of class on Friday August 18th, where they instructed to watch a PowerPoint demonstration that listed statistics for standardized testing. “African Americans have underperformed on standardized tests for the past three years… Only 32 percent are at Level 3 or higher.”
WTSP reports that Black fourth and fifth graders were required to attend the mandatory assembly despite their test scores or performance.
