NAACP Comments on Racial Issues in Supt. Search

WBBJ 7 Eyewitness News Staff

JACKSON, Tenn.-Members of the local branch of the NAACP are speaking out about recent racial issues in the superintendent search.

Earlier this week, two candidates, Doctor Kayle Green, and Doctor Dan Lawson withdrew their names, citing racial issues within the district.

Both candidates said they did not believe they would be able to handle the diversity of the school district.

Members of the NAACP also cited recent comments by a local radio
talk show host as examples of a growing problem.

Officials said they are now concerned about community leaders' ability to address these issues in Jackson-Madison County.
