Following the developments in NYC (see: http://www.city-data.com/forum/new-york-city/2914165-upper-west-siders-appalled-idea-diversity.html), is it unthinkable if the Democrats take the NY Senate that liberals will push for similar changes statewide?

I could see that happening.

NYC is one large school district. That's not the case in other parts of NY; it's probably why our towns each operate their own SD. It wouldn't fly no matter who was in charge.

Agree with GiveMeCoffee. Never happen.

BTW exm tying the possibility of a Democrat state Senate with changes in how local school districts operate is an obvious scare tactic. You don't get the local control of the school districts.

lol you guys saying it could never happen lack vision. Look into what HUD was doing under Obama in Westchester - tying federal funding to compliance with the Fair Housing Act via the “Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing” protocol, for example. Therein, the government decides that your suburb is too white and that this must be because of housing discrimination and not prices or self-selection. They then sue your town/county and demand that they “desegregate” if you want those federal dollars that they depend on.

https://www.curbed.com/2018/1/26/169...elay-explained

This was going strong until God Emperor Trump took over and shut it down. But I don’t see why a Democratic-majority legislature wouldn’t try the same shenanigans.

From what I’ve read it was a real hoot, too. HUD-funded orgs would buy houses on single family streets, knock them down and build low income housing regardless of zoning laws or the ability of the schools/utilities to handle that density. And the County had to look the other way or face getting sued again.

Yep - all NY school districts have to comply with unfunded state mandated rules. Unfunded mandates eat up a huge chunk of local school budgets - and there is nothing they can do about it.
