ACLU and NAACP file suit against Ferguson-Florissant School District
By Daniel Greenwald
FERGUSON, Mo. (KMOV.com) -- The ACLU and the NAACP have filed suit against the Ferguson-Florissant School District after the civil rights group says the district's at-large elections make it more difficult for black leaders to be elected.
The suit has been filed even though the district serves more black families than white. The suit suggests candidates be selected by ward of district.
A school spokesperson says the lawsuit is currently being reviewed.
