I think its another right that is taken from the parents of children. Also I think it is another representation of how a judge can rule on something instead of the parents who being affected voting on it.

This choice law was and is not affecting anyone so why they changing it. What it does do is give parents a choice to what school their kid can attend. Of course transportation is on the parents plate if they are out of the district, but so I'm not seeing why another parental freedom is taken.

It is being abused for athletes to play for the coach they like.

In in other counties the federal law over ride the state law. For example a black kid cannot school choice into the jonesboro school Dist and a white kid cannot school choice out because of the white to black ratio in the district. The effects a lot of different schools in the state. This is what the judge says
is unconstitutional.

If a kid will just go to class, sit down, shut up, pay attention, and study, it doesn't matter what school he/she has to attend.

The desecration law doesn't effect Greene county because because we don't have very many black children. Losing the school choice law hurts Greene county very badly. This is one of the worst things to happen to education in 30yrs. Now all the schools will be fighting to make sure if you live in their Dist you go to their school. When all this starts don't blame the schools it's the only way they can protect their funding.

It's spelled desegregation not desecration
