BERKELEY, MO (KTVI) – Friday, the Missouri chapter of the NAACP raised the question of whether race played a part in the Ferugson-Florissant superintendent being placed on leave.

The vice-president with the NAACP said the group filed a federal complaint with the Department of Justice and the US Department of Education asking for an investigation into the decision by the Ferguson-Florissant board of education to place Supt. Dr. Art McCoy on administrative leave.

More than 75 supporters gathered Friday calling for the reinstatement of McCoy.
