please stop

Everyone keeps referring to this as if it is us against them, the term ghetto and hood keep getting used. Please stop turning this into a battle of insults and judgements. I have been very involved with this because my neighborhood was one moved to Williston, and although the board keeps saying it is a good school, and it is known to have a good principal, and great students come from there, that is NOT the point. If kids are being bussed in, and others bussed out of that district, that SCREAMS problems. There are obviously unresolved issues in our school system that must be resolved. No one should be disrespected because they are poor, but if the system sees a problem, they need to fix it, by sending in reinforcements, not move all of our kids around. The board does not realize this action spawns alot of this type of perspectives, and I am fed up with it. The kids need to stay close and not be moved to make something look better on paper.
