School board members and a group of black community leaders are getting ready to meet and discuss allegations in Springfield Public Schools.
Four leaders from Springfield's black community brought up concerns within District 186, and how minorities, including Superintendent Walter Milton, are being treated.
Gail Simpson, co-chair of a committiee for minority teacher recruitment, says she hopes to find the problem is just a lack of education and understanding.
"I would hope there's not an across the board effort to disregard the hire of minorities in this district," said Simpson.
Speaking with Bob Murray on Thursday's Morning Newswatch, Simpson said the group believes not enough minorities are being hired, and are concerned about the resignation of a black administrator after the illegal actions of a white teacher at Lanphier High School.
