Community leaders gathered Tuesday night to speak out on admission changes coming to two Tulsa magnet schools.

The fight over the future of Booker T Washington High School and Carver Middle School is not over. That's according to members of the group called "TEACH", Tulsans for Education and Community Heritage.

The Tulsa School board voted last month to use geography instead of race to determine admissions to the two magnet schools.

TEACH says the change in the admissions policy will not preserve racial balance at Booker T or Carver.
