The brother and sister-in-law of former first lady Michelle Obama are suing the University School of Milwaukee, alleging that administrators kicked their sons out after they complained of racist bias being used during virtual learning.

Craig and Kelly Robinson filed a lawsuit against the Pre-K-12 school this week.

The complaint alleges that the school retaliated against their family after they submitted reports in January and March 2021 about concerns about racial and socio-economic bias at the school.

The couple had conversations with the school, offering suggestions for improvement, but said they were shocked when the school dismissed their children, ages 9 and 11, despite them being ‘model students.’

Tuition for their sons at the private school was costing $23,130 for their third grader and $24,640 for their other son, who is in fifth grade.

‘We heard what was going on in the classroom because of COVID,’ Craig Robins told GMA Tuesday. ‘There were repeated use of racial and ethic stereotypes that were in actual assignments. The use of the word plantation, and things of that nature.’

‘In addition…there was an insensitivity to socio-economic status as well as a disregard for children who weren’t physically in the classroom.’

The parents thought that conversations with the school would help, but instead they received termination letters that accused them of ‘repeatedly engaging in disrespectful and demanding communications with our teachers.’
