Pathfinder K-8 Civil Rights Complaint

On April 11, 2023, FAIR filed a civil rights complaint with the United States Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights against Pathfinder K-8 School in Seattle, Washington. Pathfinder is part of Seattle Public Schools and serves children in kindergarten through 8th grade. The complaint is for discrimination in violation of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Pathfinder leadership has implemented several programs that separate students and other community members based on race or skin color in violation of federal law. Despite two attempts to begin a constructive dialogue with Pathfinder on better ways to further its antiracism goals, FAIR has not received a response from the school. It is our hope that the Office of Civil Rights will open an investigation into the matter and set forth requirements for the school to cease all discriminatory activities.
