Leaders to hold meeting following Dillard Dr. segregation

Wake School leaders agreed to meet with concerned parents about segregated meetings held at Dillard Drive Middle School last year.

After an alleged gang argument between two girls, the principal at Dillard held separate meetings with black students and Hispanic students.

Some parents and citizens later protested calling the meetings a violation of students' civil rights. They demanded a public meeting and a public apology from the principal.

On Tuesday, School Board Chair Rosa Gill said she, Superintendent Del Burns and School Board Member Anne McLaurin will be willing to meet with three people about the situation.

At least two people need to be parents from Dillard Drive. School leaders support the principal's actions and will not have her attend the meeting.
