The professional educators...the ones who care so much about the children...should be ashamed at their failure to resolve the most egregious example of parochialism one could imagine.
I was the one who brought to light the dilemma kids in the Creekwood Apartment Complex will face when most of them will live in the City within spitting distance of an elementary school, but will be herded on busses and driven five miles to Glen Park because decades ago some then empty land in the Town of Pamelia was placed in the General Brown School District.
The kids are just human chattel.
The system will not yield to common sense, but the City School Board can. Students in this off situation should not be punished. Tuition should be waived and these children should be allowed to walk to nearby North Elementary School.
I wonder if all those people who carry on about Army families or any families for that matter will join in the call to do it for the children, because the six figure professionals have clearly let them down.
