Saturday, November 6, 2021 — 61-year-old Patricia Lampron was beaten unconscious after asking a student to leave the school campus after the school had closed. Lampron, the school's principal, suffered broken ribs.

The incident occurred at the Henderson Inclusion School in Dorchester, Massachusetts.

Such violence is nothing new. During the late 1960s and early 70s, I attended a majority black high school. Violence was a daily occurrence. Police were assigned to the campus as their regular beat. 

Denial does nothing to resolve problems.
