Hi, I am a student in a secondary school, the school posted my name without my consent onto the wall, since I am an international student my name was posted on the "international student" only section in which the chart on the wall is to assign to me which "PACK" (homeroom) class I go to. The other Non-International Student/Citizens had their own section on the other side of the school where they are addressed to their separate "PACK" (homeroom) class. I have addressed the school that this causes discrimination and racism but the school refuse to take it down as they claim that keeping the chart segregated is the best way for the school to contact its students and after talking with the counselor and vice principal their own excuse was "deal with it" and claimed that many black people in the school gets called the "N" word and they deal with every day, and started to use emotional stories and BS persuasion to its students. Is it even legal for a PUBLIC school to do this? I am considering taking legal action if what the school has done is Illegal.
