Video

Body

DURHAM — The state chapter of the NAACP says it will file a complaint against an eastern North Carolina school system alleging that its practices have hampered black students.

The organization said in a news release issued Monday that it would file the complaint against Wayne County schools, citing policies that have resulted in lower graduation rates, higher suspension rates and more and stiffer discipline for black students.

The Rev. William Barber II said the complaint will be filed with the U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S. Department of Education on Tuesday.

A spokesman for Wayne County schools said officials hadn’t received the complaint yet and couldn’t respond to the allegations.
