The Action4Ashley Coalition, working with the Southern Coalition for Social Justice, filed a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights, claiming inaction and neglect in regard to concerns about mold and indoor air-quality at Ashley Academy for Global and Cultural Studies. The federal complaint was filed against Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools and the school board over building conditions. It claims that students were discriminated against on the basis of race, including in the way money was allocated in the 2016 bond.
