So now that our country has reversed desegregation in our public schools, my attention has been drawn to a recent decision made by my local school district to end the volunteer transfer program. This program used to bring students from failing inner city schools to our rich suburban oasis of education while making a small gesture towards mixing the diverse cultures of this Greater St. Louis Area.
What the fuck is Lindbergh thinking? The said they don’t have enough space and that there is enough diversity within their district. This has to be some kind of joke. My neighbor’s house was for sale a few years back, and a black couple came to look at it. Immediately afterwards, a bunch of my other neighbors threatened to move out if they moved in. Yeah, our area would not possibly use more exposure to diverse people.
The Lindbergh school board should be fired.
