  •  yeah, you should see what the (0+ / 0-)

    local level came up with!

    In Tuscaloosa AL they drew one sweeping line where all the Blacks and poorer whites and a few middle class Whites on one side and all the wealthier Whites and many middle class Whites on the other.

    The Whiter wealthier portion got to go the the nicer newer Sr. High and the rest were assigned to the rundown Black school.

    When that didn't fly past the Justice Department the lovely locals tried to make people as miserable as possible and blame it on the Feds.

    They said all 9th graders to one school. 10th graders to another, 11th to still another and the 12th to still another.

    Can you imagine the joy of parents with more than one kid?  And the complications for teaching all kids at one level. What about kids who wanted something out of step?

    Oh yeah, leave it to the locals. That worked out real well after 1875.
