Editorial: APS school board racism allegations warrant public scrutiny

Aurora Sentinel: Silence is not a viable option for the Aurora Public Schools Board of Education.

That’s the tactic the school board is taking after a bombshell report of racism was published by the Sentinel two weeks ago.

The report from an outside special investigator summarized that two Black school board members had for months, possibly longer, racially harassed outgoing Superintendent Rico Munn.

Munn is also Black.

The controversy became public June 20 when the Sentinel reported that APS Board members Stephanie Mason and Tramaine Duncan on numerous occasions reviled Munn for not being supportive enough of Black APS employees or working hard enough to recruit more, according to a report from an investigator who specializes in scurrilous employment claims.
