What a major power-grab the courts have undertaken. The LR School district has progressively grown worse over the decades the district has been under the court's supervision. Although the district has a few bright spots, the district as a whole is getting worse. instead of becoming more racially equal, the district is just growing more out of ballance - because of white flight. the schools have gotten so bad, that even minority families and students are moving out of the district.

What more does the court want? The schools in LR already draw the largest per-student revenue from the state by a huge margin- with the accompanying higest expendature per-student of any district in the state.

Magnet schools, incentive schools, special programs, and public invovlement have all let to the courts still not being satisfied.

The next-to-last paragraph says it all - the court could see that the burden of the courts is causing more problems than it is solving.... but they upheld the crazy ruling anyway.

So what's the solution???

I know first hand what it's like to be in a school district where kids are bused here and there and never get to go to their neighborhood school. If black parents really wanted their kids to go to a "better" school, then they have every right to move. Or better yet, make an effort to support their neighborhood school and bust butts if their kids are a disruption at school. This is just another big brother getting in the way and the whiners getting more handouts.

Close all the law schools in the state. Too many lawyers are making too good a living on ridiculous things like this.
