Do not come back at me in accusation and anger, I truly want to know the answer and have wondered about it before now.
If anyone knows the answer from a different perspective, I'd like to know.
I will answer your question seriously, though I doubt you'll care. Our school in the suburbs was a much better funded and better performing school than the city high school our bused kids would've had to go to had the urban-suburban program not been in place. And quite a few took advantage of the better education and got into good colleges

The architects don't care about any of that. They want them to mix and integrate with the suburban kids as a social engineering plan. Same as moving section 8 people away from their communities into suburbia, despite the disruption, social isolation and problems with transportation.

Libs can mix together whatever group of kids they want.

It won’t fix the kids with bad parents/no parents and will continue to push the students with parents that prioritize education to private and charter schools.

Go ahead, continue to destroy the public school system. It really doesn’t affect me and I don’t care. Just don’t try to raise my property taxes to support it.

Think again.

They want to squeeze out working class and middle class suburban America like a lemon. Any way they can. And they hand out the juice to others for free. We get to keep the mushy old rind and are then made to feel guilty for it and told we owe ever more to everyone else. Paying for our "privilege" of working our butts off only to be told we don't deserve it. See *why Trump won*.

Bernie is like all the other democrats who want to push programs by use of force. They all want to be elected to use the government to punish people. Who elects a politician to punish people ? Democrats.

It used to be common for people to vote for people that were going to help them on some issue important to them. Not so with the democrats. That idea has been replace with a promise to punish those that can't get in step with the lefts totalitarian views.

"ELECT ME, I PROMISE TO PUNISH_____________(fill in the blank) Because that's what government is for !!!!

When government is the master its a disaster !!!

Look at the universities where American Blacks segregate themselves from the real African Americans (which is all of them).

And, why is that?

Do Caucasians go into Black neighborhoods and commit crimes?

No, so who's committing those crimes?

They cannot complain, while at the same time tolerating crime because it's cool, you know, "gangsta," and then simultaneously refuse to do their civic do and assist or cooperate with police.

Probably both.

Schools are hardly "government."

Get elected to the school board, and you can make all the changes for the better you want. The problem is everyone is "too busy" doing other thing to get involved and run for a seat on the school board or even to attend school board meetings.

Actually, it has a total basis in reality. The median cost for one years tuition at a private high school is $20,000. Median family income is $36,000 after taxes (Income tax and FICA). Do the math....

in this age of internet, technology, lightning quick access to information, etc. education could be delivered in many different forms that would render the brick and mortar day prisons that pass for govt schools largely irrelevant.
Forcing kids onto busses and driving them to the other side of town shouldn't be on anyones list of education improvements...well unless you're a luddite.
