Parents Confront Admin Over 'Diversity Day'

Some parents of Pittsburgh's Gateway High School students were troubled after hearing how the school conducted its "Diversity Day" event.


Those who attended the emergency meeting demanded to know who composed and sent out emails and a Facebook post this week after an out-of-school fight broke out Tuesday at a local park. The post, which has since been deleted, called for a "Diversity Day." Students were told to wear Gateway High shirts and "Black Lives Matter" shirts for the pre-planned event. Parents said Friday that the post on an official district account added racial tension to what was originally a nonpolitical, juvenile dispute.
