The Kern High School District expels far more Latino and African-American students than white ones and sends them to alternative schools that limit their academic opportunities.
The Dolores Huerta Foundation, two other nonprofits and 10 people affected by this discrimination sued the school district and its Board of Trustees, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson, and the California Department of Education, on Oct. 8 in Kern County Court.
As we anticipated, the defendants in the case Sanders v. KHSD have filed papers attempting to limit the scope of the litigation.
Their arguments will be heard in court on Tuesday, February 24th at 8:30 AM by Judge Eric Bradshaw, Department T-2. We hope you will join us.
The courthouse is located at 3131 Arrow Street in Bakersfield.
