A parental rights group filed a federal civil rights complaint Thursday against New York City Public Schools for separating students by race for discussions on social justice topics, saying the practice amounted to racial discrimination.

Parents Defending Education President Nicole Neily filed the complaint with the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights, accusing the NYC school district of engaging in racial discrimination in violation of federal civil rights law.
