Atlanta Parent Files School Segregation Charge

Parents across the nation are immersed in concerns regarding the welfare of their children returning to school, i.e., Covid, to mask or not to mask, vaccines, and now school segregation. In Atlanta, one of those concerned parents has filed a federal complaint against her child’s elementary school claiming that it is segregating classes by race.

Kila Posey is charging Mary Lin Elementary School and the school’s principal for allegedly separating classes and children by race. According to Posey, the school placed Black students in two separate classes with two separate teachers and white students in six classes with six different teachers.

Briscoe, a Black administrator, said she believed the practice was in the best interest of the students, according to WSB-TV 2.

“First, it was just disbelief that I was having this conversation in 2020 with a person that looks just like me — a Black woman,” Posey said.
