I am from the South

I am from the South and I have always believed in neighborhood schools. My husband grew up withing walking district of one of the high schools, but his neighbor across the street was bussed to a different school. My cousin passed by one high school on the bus to get to his assigned school. It is ridiculous. The county schools are funded by the county and the resources should be allotted equally to ensure that the quality of education at each school is equal.

My daughter was in the New Hanover County school system for her first three years and although she actually went to school closest to our house I am glad to be out of that system. Next year she starts her seventh year in the Brunswick County school system and my younger daughter will be starting her fourth. It is such a relief to know that they won't have to keep changing schools at the whims of a handful of people who want to redraw the lines every other year.
