Feds move forward with Mary Lin Elementary Investigation

After allegations, primarily by Mary Lin parent Kila Posey, of race-based class placement at Mary Lin Elementary, a school that feeds into Midtown, federal agencies are looking into the situation.

On November 14, the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights told Lisa Herring, the superintendent of Atlanta Public Schools, that an investigation into a complaint of racial discrimination and retaliation submitted in July 2021 would be launched.
