Curious how many people out there are affected by El Dorado's decision to not allow school choice and what are you going to do. Can not believe there has not been a topic already started. I just heard about this issue.

I wonder if this is to keep the white kids at EHS. Then again the Promise should have attracted more white kids from the outskirts into EHS. Maybe more white kids were leaving EHS than were coming in. You can bet they didn't make this decision just because. It was done for a reason, and that reason was to keep money and/or higher test scores for EHS. Could have something to do with government funding. I really have no idea. Anyone else have any info?

Politics and money. It's a shame when parents can't decide which school their child attends. Bob Watson has cried "white flight" for many years.

So other than El Do and Junction kids can go wherever, is that right? Do other schools have to release students too? This is all confusing.

Maybe Chemtura and Tetra will step up and make a PC Promise to PC students.
