The guy who originated the idea of school busing later quietly said that the whole idea had been a MISTAKE that he was sorry for having propounded!!!
BUT, the media made no notice of this inconvenient truth reckoning by the AUTHOR of the concept.
Consider the mega-billions wasted on the busing itself, then also on the disruption and decline of neighborhoods as "white flight" inevitably ensued.
Blacks and AmerIndian Hispanics remain GRADE levels behind-- REALLY because of innately lower aptitudes...and they are HALF of all public school students. THEY are why we average 18th in verbal and 24th in math...our Anglo and Asian kids OUTPERFORM their counterparts in other countries.
