One day after the superintendant of Minneapolis schools outlined her proposal for closing North High, the head of the local NAACP called on parents to pull their kids out of Minneapolis schools altogether. Booker Hodges issued a statement accusing Superintendant Bernardeia Johnson and the school board of failing to education the children of north Minneapolis, many of whom are black.
