We do it here

If you look at the map for Myrtle Grove Middle School you will see a chunk of downtown is bussed to Monkey Junction while students in that area are bussed downtown. Williston is a school downtown that is much closer for those living in that area. It is just the same as Brown VS Board of Education. Students are not allowed to attend the school closest to their home.

From WikipediA:
"Brown's daughter Linda, a third grader, had to walk six blocks to her school bus stop to ride to Monroe Elementary, her segregated black school one mile (1.6 km) away, while Sumner Elementary, a white school, was seven blocks from her house."

And now we do the same thing by bussing students past a school to send them to another one in hopes of reaching some sort of fairy land equality. The old saying of "You can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink" comes to mind. You can take students and put them in another school but you can't make them care or learn.
