City Considering Lawsuit Over Segregated Schools

Posted Updated
GOLDSBORO, N.C. — There is new battle in the fight over segregation in Goldsboro City schools.

The Goldsboro City Council announced plans to file a civil rights complaint and a possible lawsuit.

The six schools within city limits are nearly 100 percent minority. Community leaders say the students are not given the same opportunities as those in schools in the county.

The NAACP has threatened to sue the school district for disparate treatment of predominantly black city schools. It filed a civil rights complaint last week.
