Good for him!
A school in San Francisco caused controversy after the principal withheld student council election results because they weren’t “diverse” enough.
KRON reported that the student body was outraged. Students felt Everett Middle School Principal Lena Van Haren stalled making the winners public because she doesn’t like the results, not because she is trying to teach about diversity.
One student in particular spoke up, and destroyed the principal’s argument in one amazing sentence.
“The whole school voted for those people, so it is not like people rigged the game, but in a way, now it is kinda being rigged,” said student and candidate Sebastian Kaplan.
“I feel like it is disrespectful to all the people who were running,” Kaplan added.
No kidding. Not to mention the voters.
The principal withheld the election results because she claimed that they didn’t represent the diversity of the school. About 80 percent of the student body are students of color, and 20 percent are white.
“The organizers are saying things like, ‘we want everyone’s voice to be heard,’ but in truth, the voters’ voices are not being heard,” Kaplan said before the results were released. “Most kids are in agreement that the results need to come out because kids worked really hard on it.”
