Feds Investigating Claim Of Civil Rights Violations In Schools On Chicago's South Side

The Huffington Post reports:
The U.S. Department of Education has launched an investigation into alleged discrimination taking place at two public schools located on Chicago's South Side where course offerings have been slashed to the point where physical education is only available as an online class.

Students and parents at the two majority African-American public schools -- Dyett High and Mollison Elementary -- allege Title VI civil rights violations have taken place and that their families have been forced to "endure an education that is separate and unequal," according to a press release from the Rainbow PUSH Coalition, a participant in the community's call for a federal probe of conditions at the schools.

Speaking at a Tuesday press conference, Jeanette Wilson, a senior advisor to the Rev. Jesse Jackson, described the education department's pending probe as "a major first step" toward community activists' goal to stop the closure of the two schools, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.
Will gentry liberals mind busing their children far way from home in the name of "diversity" and equality ? Is Rahm Emanuel a racist for running this kind of public school system??? Doesn't Rahm Emanuel care about brown children?
