Feds to investigate complaint that white school libraries get better support in Mobile County

Press Register – “The federal government has opened an investigation into allegations that the Mobile County school system spends a disproportionate amount of money on libraries and other facilities in majority-white schools at the expense of predominantly black ones.

Mobile County schools Superintendent Roy Nichols said he is confident the federal officials will find that the system treats its schools the same. He said the system funds school libraries at the same per-student rate, and lets each librarian decide how to spend it. “
