For Immediate Release
County NAACP calls for Nicastro’s resignation.
The St. Louis County Branch of the NAACP is outraged by the recent attempts made by Missouri Commissioner of Education Chris Nicastro to force Missouri’s unaccredited school districts into a super school district.
The NAACP feels that Dr. Nicastro’s actions undermine St. Louis’ unaccredited school districts and do not move Missouri’s struggling school districts forward. The NAACP is strongly against charter schools, vouchers and any other program that could potentially deplete public school district funding.
“The St. Louis County NAACP is calling on Dr. Nicastro to step down immediately. Her recent blunder to move toward charter school development is an action that doesn’t have our area struggling school districts best interest at the forefront of her mission”.
-Statement by Branch President & Former Missouri State Representative Esther Haywood.
