As the Department of Education’s civil rights investigation into Carroll ISD in Southlake continues, passionate parents on both sides of the issue are speaking out.
“This is going to get worse. These guys are willing to do and say anything, but what can we do except stand up for the minority kids (and) the special needs kids in our town and insist that the issues that are being revealed get addressed?” Carroll ISD dad Bjorn Bennett said.
On Wednesday, the Department of Education’s Office for Civils Rights told WFAA it has opened three separate investigations into the district “related to discrimination based on race, color, national origin, or sex.”
But Carroll ISD’s headlines started years ago, after two separate videos of students chanting a racial slur went viral.
