AMHERST, Mass (WGGB) — School administrators in Amherst have launched an investigation after racist graffiti has been repeatedly
found on school grounds. The incidents have all happened in the high school and have been targeted at one African-American teacher.
The latest hateful, racist attack sent shockwaves through the Amherst Regional High School community this week.
“Yesterday someone wrote ‘f you Ms. Gardner’ in the bathroom and then below that was the ‘n word,’” Junior Meaghan McCluskey said.
Principal Mark Jackson says that was the third time this year African-American math teacher Carolyn Gardner has been targeted by racist remarks.
“Nobody deserves that, so I think it’s really sad,” McCluskey said.
