A Boston School Super Intendent has resigned amidst a lawsuit alleging the school system shared students information with ICE to get them deported.
The superintendent of Boston Public Schools has resigned amid a lawsuit over allegations the district handed over student information to immigration law enforcement.
Superintendent Tommy Chang confirmed Friday to The Boston Globe that he was stepping down after three years with the district, but declined to say the reason for his resignation.
Boston Mayor Martin Walsh (D) said he was dissatisfied with Chang's leadership, according to the Globe, saying the district needs "a long-term education leader with a proven record in management who can gain the confidence of the community on the strategic vision for the district."
Multiple civil rights groups sued the Boston Public Schools on Thursday after the school district declined repeatedly to say how often they provide student information to immigration authorities, according to The Associated Press.
The lawsuit accused the Boston system of having a "school to deportation pipeline."
What are your thoughts on this? Is this something that should be totally acceptable in schools? Do you think the superintendent should have resigned?
