Racial Gap Persists in CHCCS Schools

Record #:
A recent press conference held by the Chapel Hill-Carrboro NAACP expresses the feelings of many in the community. The issue of falling test scores for low-income and minority students and the lack of minorities enrolled in honors courses were the subject of the press conference. Scores were initially rising until new standards were implemented over the past five years. A change in mindset and new leadership is needed to reduce the gap according to some observers.
