Civil rights complaints involving Charlotte-Mecklenburg schools are being reviewed

The United States Dept. of Education is reviewing civil rights complaints in five matters where it involves the closure of Charlotte-Mecklenburg schools, in North Carolina. Specifically, the complaints involve alleged discrimination against black and Hispanic students.

The department announced it intends to decide upon the credibility of these cases within the next few weeks, where it involves possible investigations. In a worst-case situation for CMS, should there be a finding that the school district did violate any civil rights statutes, federal funding to the schools could be blocked. In addition, a U.S. Department of Justice investigation could also be recommended.

The New York Theological Seminary is an institution dedicated to multiculturalism, diversity, social justice and religious tolerance. The mission of the seminary is to prepare men and women, from every background, for careers in ministry.
