The future of school zones: Uh, oh.

Posted by on Wed, Sep 8, 2010 at 9:43 AM

Wait, wasn't the whole idea of junking the diversity policy that it would put an end to "massive reshuffling" in the Wake school system? But as Charlotte-Mecklenburg foretells, when you create GOOD SCHOOLS and BAD SCHOOLS, guess what? People with money move to where the good schools are, and the bad schools empty out.

What happens next? "Massive reshuffling," as the Charlotte Observer reports.

The conservatives in Charlotte-Meck got rid of diversity seven years ago. They've been paying for it ever since.

And paying for it in more ways than just higher taxes.
