Parker Varney discriminates on children & families of color. When issues pccur between students, they are constantly blaming the color child. They do not write up their white students nor do they suspend them. They pick & choose favoritism. For example, little white boy has ADHD gets to flip out at school & destroy property, yet nothing happened to him. Now an African American boy whom also has ADHD was dealing with the same issues, he was immediately suspended. Not realizing that it is against the law to suspend a child with a disability and an IEP. The school staff take advantage of their positions. The Secretary forges check marks on the students release of information& illegally obtains any information she pleases & yet the Manchester School District allows it. The staff repeatedly files false allegations through CPS on mixrd families & they also pull aside mixed children just to question them. Constantly making up stories about other families. This school system is so corrupted!!
