This article is about the NAACP and Indian River County school board on the desegregation issues and concerns about education. The NAACP believes that the school is over-represented by blacks or African Americans at the Indian River’s Alternative Education Center. I believe that the NAACP is trying to make sure that students are not violated and that the schools are following desegregation rules; but it is difficult to comply with desegregation orders at an alternative school when you cannot determine who will get into trouble on a given day. I believe it will be very complicated to considerate the desegregation order when dealing with these types of schools.
