Reply to "Resegregation of North Carolina Schools Leads to Massive Protests"

Reference:
I hate hearing people insist that our kids have to be bussed to schools with white kids in order to learn.
Vox, I agree with your sentiment of wanting children to be able to go to school in their own neighborhoods, but I think that this has to be weighed over against issues such as allocation of resources and opportunities. If it can be guaranteed that schools in the black communities have the same resources and opportunities as those in white majority communities, the situation might be palatable. In fact, I would go farther and suggest, if there is a guarantee in place that students attending schools in the black community have the same graduation rate, test scores, and college admissions, then I could care less about the racial demographics in the class room, they could be as segregated as they want to be.
