Carroll, Texas (WBAP/KLIF) – The Carroll Independent School District has put an anti-racism plan on hold at last night’s meeting. They now want to wait until a new superintendent is hired next year before implementing what’s called a Cultural Confidence Action Plan.
Many irate parents spoke at last night’s meeting. One parent told the trustees, “We trusted you for years stand up for our children.”
A team of over 60 people worked for over a year to come up with the plan that is yet to be adopted.
The need for a plan gained momentum after a video of Carroll ISD students using the n-word in 2018 made the rounds on social media.
Some parents oppose the plan, saying the the entire district should not have to suffer because of the actions of a few teenagers.
Parent Russell Maryland, a former Dallas Cowboy, was part of the 63-member team that worked on the new diversity plan for the past year-and-a-half. He feels that the plan has been upended, “by our own team.” he told WFAA-TV.
