Brookhaven School District

The Brookhaven School District is a public school district based in Brookhaven, Mississippi (USA).

In 2019 it had 2,800 students, with 65% being African-American.[1]

In 2019 the district allowed parents to ask for specific teachers, a "parental request" system with black and white parents actively using it. As a result there are elementary classrooms that are majority white and some that are all black, which Adam Northam of The Clarion-Ledger states is a de facto racial segregation system.[1]
