Can San Antonio somehow intergrate the inner city areas such as Jefferson High School Area and intergrate the Schools by busing students from the rich areas to the inner city areas and students from inner city to rich area schools?

No. There's a reason I want to move towards Stone Oak for a different ISD than the one I'm in now. It's a sad state of affairs that the teachers have to send notes home begging parents to donate money for the other students who don't pay for the field trip.

It was 3 dollars for the field trip, and the day before the field trip the teacher had only received 7 dollars in total for the whole class. Pitiful. These poor parents can spend 5 bucks on a pack of cigarettes and a 40 oz bottle of beer, but can't spare 3 dollars to send their child to the zoo.

So...punish some students to make it "fair" for others?

You can integrate (note the correct spelling) by moving to a different district.

Sure, when the parents pay over 4,000 a year for just the ISD taxes

Exactly. Pay higher taxes. Get better schools. It's pretty simple.

It won't work because we are broken up into so many different school districts as said before. I can see the pros and cons to bussing students to different schools. However, that idea is so ridiculously outdated. I feel for poor districts but I wouldn't trade my NISD education for anything. It's part of why I'm in Grad School today.

IMO, I wish all school districts were the same....and the playing field was at least somewhat level so that all children had the same experience, opportunities, and services/technology/quality education available. Kids cant help that their parents make/made bad choices, kids cant help they are poor, and live in crappy neighborhoods with lousy schools.
