The Department of Public Instruction held a public hearing yesterday on how it will implement a new state law that sets up a complaint process about schools with Indian monikers. The D-P-I ruled this week that the Osseo-Fairchild Chieftains’ nick-name and logo was racially discriminatory – and it gave the school board a year to change them.
