IRSD Denies Segregation


The Indian River School District is denying that it is segregating African-American students by sending them to the Carver Academy in Frankford.   The comments come in a response to an amended lawsuit filed by the Coalition for Education Reform.     The suit claims that five African-American students at Carver were mistreated and the suit was amended to add two more students.   The group also claims that the student makeup of the school is disproportionate with 43-percent African-American, while the county’s population is 13-percent.
