With just one redistricting option left on the table, Tuesday night's New Hanover school board hearing would have been a low key affair, but it was not. A number of parents were upset that the board prematurely voted down the other options that aimed at increasing diversity across the county's elementary schools. One mother said she was bused as a child growing up in Wilmington and feels she's more well-rounded and better educated because of it. "If it takes my child getting bused to get a better education than what she'd get in the inner city because the school district is not giving the school the money it needs to keep going, then bus my child," said Yolanda Clark. She was not alone in that view. The board took no action but will have plenty to ponder in its next meeting.
