Chester Darling , the lawyer who previously brought a suit by Lynn parents all the way to the Supreme Court, hopes that a successful challenge will prompt other Massachusetts school districts to end their desegregation programs....
Darling said yesterday. "What benefit of integration in kindergarten do you get if you force a white kid to sit next to a black kid? There isn't any."
Oh, it's not beneficial to make sure our children learn a little bit about diversity at a young age at all. Nope, we want them to grow up as uneducated bigots, right? After all, every (bigoted) parent wants their kids to be just like them.
Lynn's current plan affects its 18 public elementary schools, which draw from small pockets of the district, more than its three high schools, said Capano.
"It's a balanced system right now," Capano said. "Our neighborhoods are sometimes very cultural- and very race-oriented. So, if you keep a very low-economic neighborhood going to the same school, then you get an unbalanced school -- and that's what we fear."
Heaven forbid a little diversity. We can't have none of that. Separate, I guess, is equal after all.
