Group promoting education fairness in St. Joe County

Posted:

An effort to promote fairness in education is already underway in St. Joe County.

It's thanks to a coalition known as "L.E.A.D.E.R.S."

That stands for Learning Effective Approaches Designed to Educate & Rebuild Students.

The group works with local school leaders to have an open discussion about equality.

Rev. Cory L. Gathright, Sr. of L.E.A.D.E.R.S. says, "We are here today because of the issue regarding the unequal allocation of resources between the affluent and the urban communities. We're here today to make sure there's a balance between the schools."

The group is also concerned about how African American administrators, teachers and staff are being treated as far as promotions and demotions in St. Joe County.
