Redistricting Schools Again

So let me get this straight. We're lowering the free and reduced lunch percentages at our newest and/or highest achieving schools and raising the percentage in our oldest, lowest achieving schools. Basically Madison County believes that the wealthier population shouldn't have to mix with the "common folk." Might as well say the new slogan for the Board of Ed is "Bring Back Segregation!"

It ain't right, but where have you been? The world has only been operating like this forever. Money makes the world go round.

The racist stuff is weak. Much more white trash than anything around here.

You haven't heard about it because its all been kept under wraps. White loses about 100 people, Glenn Marshall loses some to Daniel Boone, Daniel Boone loses some to Mayfield (including Gibson Bay and Bay View), Kit Carson loses some to Kirksville. Also, Daniel Boone goes back to Madison Middle just like they were before and Mayfield goes to Clark Moores.
It's being presented at the board meeting on Thursday.

If some schools didn't have so many out of district kids this wouldn't be an issue every 6 or 7 years

They did. Looks like the new board members are smarter than the superintendents. It would've looked really bad on our district, making the equity in the schools even more lopsided than it already is.
