Here we go again

In response to Yolanda Clark, also a local parent, said, "The only time I think they get out and meet other kids is so you spread them out and meet and mingle. If you keep a child within those barriers, that's all they're going to learn." Unfortunately in life, as we get older... That is all we do anyway... We secure ourselves around our own surroundings socially. This is not barrier-sense.. This is about common sense… In 5th grade, I was forced to leave my school which was only 4 blocks from my house and was bussed to Tileston. It was the worst experience of my entire life.. Point being.. If at age 36 I remember it being so horrid an experience, that means that is in some way scarred me for life. It is difficult enough in today's world to learn. Why make that a more distractive sentence to a child by taking them out of their surroundings of comfort? The extra travel time that will take away from studying and after school activities... The extra monies spent on fuel that could go towards classroom supplies... The entire thought of taking children out of their neighborhood is a decision which repulsive and incoherent, uneducated decision dating back to post-segregation for liberal loo-loos. If it goes through, we should file a class action against the school board to reverse the decision and waste more time and money since that is the only thing our current school board apparently knows how to do.....
