A Fair School Board Would Listen To Every One Of The Concerns
Recently, the county school board decided there should not be a policy for schoolchildren to be in school with classmates of other socio-economic-cultural backgrounds. Further, a parent cannot request a child be moved to a more diverse school.
Parents that believe diversity exposure at a young age is the key to peace are outraged. Especially since many if not all other parental concerns have been met, and history has implied a future where adults misunderstand other cultures is an extremely dangerous one.
Many support the NAACP and resent that their efforts have been ignored by the public school board overshadowing this basic concern with erroneous complexity (bringing in other ideas after the policy has passed and the school year has essentially begun). Not many know that this is a conservative campaign that has swept the country, but the NAACP knows.
That is why the NAACP is the strongest voice in this fight to keep diversity in the classrooms.
