Lots of people think that.  It harms racial harmony by encouraging them to get all uppity.

Danger Mouse: Tricky Chicken: Lost Thought 00: Tricky Chicken: How about we just fund all schools equally nationwide?  Everybody pays taxes, just pool the money and each school gets the same amount per student.

Wait, that wouldn't work. Then the teachers would fight for jobs in some up-scale areas and the more blighted areas would only be left with sub-standard teachers.

Is there a way to get all the schools to provide the same opportunity that people won't complain about?

We could just build a single massive school somewhere in the middle of nowhere, where all children are forcibly housed with no contact to the outside world until graduation, and those who never graduate never leave

A mandatory boarding school system? the idea does have some merits. But could we get it to fly? My initial reaction is that I don't want to send my son away, because I actually like the little guy.  But maybe over time, people could adjust to the idea.

I'm envisioning a federal web site that people coould go to and shop for thier education, complare prices and get quotes.


Can I get a gold, silver, or plastic designation to the quality of the schools?

If Busing was such a failure, we should have tried boating them back to africa

Actually busing was part of the flaming liberal policies of Richard M. Nixon. The Nixon administration really accelerated school integration, inspired by liberal Eisenhower putting his foot down on segregationists like in Little Rock etc.

So, that's your takeaway from reading the article?


That's my takeaway from most of the people I know who hated school bussing.
