the board had already decided against making the change.

I'm pleasantly surprised. New Hyde Park SD enrollment is nearly 1/4 Asian and close to 10% Jewish. I thought for sure this was going to go the other way. In the neighboring Herricks SD(roughly 1/3 each) any argument against the change would never have made it to the meeting agenda.

Good grief!
