9 Tukwila Teachers File Laswsuit Over "White Agenda"

Posted: Updated:

(KING) - Nine African American educators have filed a lawsuit against Washington Tukwila School District. The complaint claims the district endorses a white agenda and represses equality in education and teaching in King County's most diverse school district.

Some of the district's African American teachers claimed that they have been retaliated against for making their concerns public in the past.

"Our voices are not being heard. What is it going to take?" said Sandra Goins, a teacher with the district since 2003. "We have gone through those correct channels. Now we have to take it a step further."
