A lawsuit has now been filed by a black mother after her child’s school decided to segregate students by race.
As Fox News reports:
A mother in Atlanta filed a federal discrimination complaint against an elementary school, alleging the school segregated students based on race.
“We’ve lost sleep like trying to figure out why would a person do this,” mother Kila Posey, who is Black, told WSB-TV. “First, it was just disbelief that I was having this conversation in 2020 with a person that looks just like me — a Black woman. It’s segregating classrooms. You cannot segregate classrooms. You can’t do it.”
“My community, had they known about this, would probably be extremely upset. Not just the Black parents but also White parents,” Posey added.
Posey said that the practice was put in place last year at Mary Lin Elementary School by principal Sharyn Briscoe, who is also Black.
The Atlanta Public Schools claim that it investigated and took appropriate action, yet did not elaborate on exactly what this ‘appropriate action’ was.
