Strained relationships and feelings of mistrust are plaguing the Twin Rivers Unified School District, where many African American parents, community activists – and even two school board members – say the tensions stem from a lack of diversity among the district's top administrators...
Conflicts over how best to educate the children of the neighboring communities are not new. The districts that merged in 2008 are distinct, with Interstate 80 practically drawing a line between a northern rural area that includes Rio Linda, where most residents are white, and the southern urban end, such as Del Paso Heights, with a large minority population.
The merger was supposed to fix the fractured system.
One commenter has what might be a good fix on the issue:
Complaining about who is on a management team because their skin is not the right color sounds like racism on the part of the complainer to me.
My guess is that there are other issues at play, and the race argument is the one that some people know will get attention. But that's just my guess.
