Feds to Investigate Segregation Allegations in Robertson Schools

Federal investigators plan to meet with Robertson County school officials this month to discuss allegations of segregation. The meetings come after years of complaints to the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights about a lack of diversity and low test scores within the district’s schools – especially those inside Springfield city limits. In 2011, attorneys with the Departments of Justice and Education met with Springfield residents about these same issues. School officials say they're working to improve diversity and test scores.
