Another failed urban experiment, NAACP claims Racism.
Racism seen in move to close Charlotte schools
A proposal by the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools to close eight urban schools, where less than 10 percent of the total enrollment is white, has sparked bitter debate and action by state and local NAACP leaders accusing CMS of racism.
Gorman said the schools were tagged because they have empty classrooms or academic failings. And with budget cuts looming, he said, it’s better to sacrifice buildings than teachers.
