MARION, Texas - For the past several months there have been allegations of bullying and racism inside Marion ISD. Back in February a noose and racist note were found near the car of an African American high school student.
For the first time Wednesday night, Marion ISD board members heard from the student, along with two of her siblings. Javier Oliva, the family's attorney, said all three children had been targeted.
"It's so important that these children express to them how they feel," said Oliva. "No child or parent should have to suffer what these kids are suffering."
School board members met in executive session for several hours listening to the grievances.
"They are taking action to improve polices at the schools, along with oversight of staff," added Oliva.
Oliva told News 4 WOAI the family wanted the board to develop a plan for faculty and staff when it comes to sensitivity.
Despite Wednesday nights action the family has decided to remove their children from Marion ISD.
