ATLANTA — A parent has filed a federal complaint against her child’s school, alleging it segregated classes based on race.
She said it was a practice put in place by the school’s principal, who thought she was doing what was best for all students.
Atlanta Public Schools confirmed to Channel 2′s Tom Jones that it has wrapped up its investigation into the allegations and has taken action.
Parent Kila Posey still can’t believe a principal thought separating students by race was a good idea.
“We’ve lost sleep like trying to figure out why would a person do this,” Posey said.
She told Jones she was stunned when she learned about classes segregated by race at Mary Lin Elementary School last year.
A practice put in place and condoned by principal Sharyn Briscoe, according to Posey.
