U.S. Dept. of Education explains rights of school children

Posted: Updated:

JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - A branch of the U.S. Department of Education traveled to Jackson to explain the rights of our school children under the constitution.

Sunday's presentation was put on by the Department's Civil Rights office. Those who attended learned about equal access to education, regardless of age, sex, race  or disability.

While our cameras sat in for a portion of the meeting, an organizer told us no one with the Civil Rights office could comment on camera about the event.
