19 ar­rested in clash over school bus­ing

Austin American-Statesman - - WORLD & NATION -

RALEIGH — Pro­test­ers and po­lice scuf­fled at a school board meet­ing over claims that a new bus­ing sys­tem would re­seg­re­gate schools. Nineteen peo­ple were ar­rested, in­clud­ing the head of state NAACP chap­ter who was banned from the meet­ing af­ter a tres­pass­ing ar­rest in June. The Wake County School Board has voted mul­ti­ple times over the past sev­eral months to scrap the district’s di­ver­sity pol­icy, which dis­trib­uted stu­dents based on so­cioe­co­nomics.
