UPDATE: Status Report On School Uniform Discrimination Claim

The Pitt County Coalition for Educating Black Children says it is still awaiting word from federal officials on a complaint filed over the Pitt County Schools dress code policy.

The group filed a complaint several months ago saying the way the dress code policy is enforced unfairly targets miniorities.

At a meeting Tuesday night, the group said it is still waiting for the U.S. Department of Education to make a determination on what it will do with the complaint.
