Discrimination claims made against Bastrop ISD
Claims of discrimination that have been made against the Bastrop Independent School District has lead to changes in the district.
The incident that lead to the claims occurred in February when the principal of Bastrop Middle School asked only the African-American students to discuss their performance on the TAKS test.
The vice principal said that the meeting was called to find solutions for educational problems within the school, but others thought that it was the school blaming African-American students for shortcomings that the school saw in their test scores. School district officials also thought that this was the wrong approach. A first ever diversity plan is being thought up right now to help with the issue.
