Is there still busing in America to desegregate schools?
I thought there was a Supreme Court ruling 6 or 7 years ago that got rid of busing, but now I am questioning myself. The people where I live are very worried about inner city kids getting bused out to the suburbs and vice versa.
What is the law now? And, how much busing is still being done? I realize districts can be created to have more diversity in a school, but I am talking about people who live 20 miles from the city are worried kids will be bused out there? That seems crazy to me. No one wants their children on a bus that long when there are 6 schools that are closer.
One guy was saying that a town not too far from us, the high school never had a problem, and the first year that town was taken into the city school system there was a shooting. As proof the “bad” kids were now in that school. But, I think probably the family lived in the school district, and it is a coincidence. But, I don’t know for sure.
