St. Stephens Indian School Principal unhappy with UW Investigation’s conclusions: “It’s an insult”

(St. Stephens, Wyo.) – The Principal at St. Stephens Indian School today responded to Wednesday’s investigation findings into allegations of violations of student’s rights a week and a-half ago with an expression of disappointment. Cheryl Meyers noted that none of the St. Stephens students involved in the alleged shoplifting incident were ever questioned by the university’s investigators, and that their investigation “missed the point” of the school’s chief complaint. That is that the students were singled out because they were Native American. She called the report insulting to her, the students and the school.
