(Faribault, MN)  —  The Faribault school board is moving forward with a BIPOC-focused anti-drug grant.  The board voted yesterday to accept the state grant that funds drug abuse prevention efforts among Black, Indigenous, and other students of color.  The measure stalled at a previous meeting after several board members claimed accepting the money would amount to discrimination against white students.  Board Member Richard Olson cast the only dissenting vote.  About 60-percent of Faribault district students are children of color.
