So our team visited schools and parents in a half-dozen urban districts on that list, while we presented our findings by phone and email to officials in problematic districts for response."Houston ISD issued this statement before the AJC article on their school system was even published.
Nashville Metro Schools also issued a statement minutes before the AJC article on their school system was published.
On Saturday, April 28th at 12 PM the AJC article on MCPS was online.
