Catholic School Accused of Discrimination

A Catholic high school in Missouri accused a student of being a racist for having a sticker that supports the police. Now, she’s suing the school. Villa Duchesne, a Catholic all-girls school in Frontenac, Missouri, is being sued. An 18-year-old white, female student had a sticker on her laptop of the “thin blue line,” which signals support for law enforcement. The lawsuit alleges students and faculty accused her of being a racist and harassed her.

Villa Duchene’s director of marketing and communications said they are “not addressing this matter publicly.” In a statement to NTD, they said “Our primary focus remains on our mission of Sacred Heart education and on our students as we begin the spring semester.”
