Panel gives reasons
A spark for equality and justice was ignited at Monday night's meeting hosted by a group of concerned citizens at the Minden Civic Center to discuss dropping a push for unitary status.
"We are going to take the best of our school system that we have," said Frankie Mitchell, Webster Parish School Board District 9. "We have a restriction in the court order that the ratio should be 64/36 percent (white teacher to black teacher ratio) and that hasn't been met. We have to put out a very good effort to make anything work."
