Re: “Gerald Grant on Wake's school success

I was unimpressed by the yearly move of students from one school to another. That was unnecessary, to my untrained eye. However, I do believe in the value of desegregation, and worry that this provincial attitude that is the loudest (not necessarily the majority, just the majority of people who voted) will mean that kids in poor parts of town will get fewer resources, and perpetuate a cycle of substandard education and subsequent poverty. Currently schools in some of the worst neighborhoods have stellar reputations. Hunter, Washington, Combs...kids in affluent areas benefit from the magnet school system as much as the local kids do. That's all at risk now. So, enjoy walking your child to your local school, and enjoy your "win." Ignore the larger problem that will undoubtedly result. Segregation helps no one.
