    African-American school superintendent accused of calling black staff 'slaves' resigns over racism investigation

    An African-American school administrator has resigned because of an ongoing investigation into complaints that she made racist remarks to black staff.

    Ethelda Burke resigned from her post as Tukwila School District Superintendent after nine district employees filed racial discrimination complaints against her.

    Two staff members at Showalter Middle School alleged that Burke referred to them as ‘slaves’ while another employee said she criticized him for turning the district into a ‘ghetto' by hiring too many black staff.
