PITT COUNTY -

A college sociology professor said he thought the Pitt County school board achieved, maintained and tried to repair racial disparities with the system.
    
The second day of testimony for David Armor of George Mason University came Tuesday during a hearing on the ongoing dispute over efforts to desegregate schools in the eastern North Carolina county.
    
Five local administrators also testified at the hearing.
    
Pitt County is looking to be released from a 1970 court order that required officials to desegregate the schools. The order lay dormant until a group of Greenville parents challenged the 2005 redistricting plan.
