Race plays a big role on the Duval County School Board
A few weeks back both African American members of the board, Paula Wright and Betty Burney voted to select Kriner Cash an African American as the replacement for Ed Pratt-Dannals. The rest of the board members, all white, voted for the eventual successor Nikolai Vitti.
Maybe we really haven’t come that far after all.
Fast-forward to earlier today when Connie Hall nominated Paula Wright for vice chair of the board. All the white members however voted for Becki Couch.
