Mississippi School To Move Into Last Century
The Tate County (Miss.) School Board has decided to stop electing separate black and white high school homecoming queens and courts – next year. Opponents of the practice have filed a formal complaint with the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights and had sought to invalidate a Sept. 18 election of two slates of candidates.
They term the outdated practice “racist” and illegal. A similar situation at Hernando High School in 1997 was investigated by the Office of Civil Rights and led to race-neutral elctions there.
