      Well it sounds like you were able to get kind of first hand knowledge about the situation or what the man told you was his own reasoning. Regardless this is serious but I would hesitate to do anything about it. 1. The principal sounds like she doesn't want to press the matter and if "fine" where she is at. Maybe in the future she'll be able to excel and call the out then. 2. You can bring it up to the proper authorities but again be prepared to call upon the principal who might be reluctant to talk. 3. Finally, I would encourage you think about this and make sure this is a battle you think you could undertake.

      PS. Race relations between White and Brown people has a long history both good and bad(especially) here in Texas. I would point to the "Brownsville Riot" as reference.

        If a few parents said it's so, then it must be true.

          Sorry so late to this subject but I feel I have to say something. I didn't know there was a petition to get rid of that principal. I can honestly say that I was happy that she was moved as she was not a good fit at Stuart Place. I saw that school's moral go way down the year she was there. She removed a bunch of the activities that made the kids happy to go to school like the "family member/student" breakfast or lunch (or tea party if you want to call it that). I was not happy as Stuart was one of only a couple of schools to not have these activities and the other schools were all low performers unlike Stuart Place. I'm sorry but I don't think it was because her accent. In speaking to some of the staff, all said that she changed so many things that it affected the parent/teacher relationship as well as the student/teacher relationship to the point that it was affecting performance. I can also say that Stuart Place isn't like it was just two/three years ago. Just my thoughts.

            Disappearing two to three hours almost daily and not performing routine duties...nah, it’s racism.
