here it's also one of the wealthiest counties in the country this is going to be a very big change for the folks who live in Howard County so when you talk about how can you say it's one of them wealthy school districts in the country what is the problem why not go ahead and try to make things a little bit more diverse a little bit more equal well what they're trying to do is they're saying that some of the schools have a lower poverty rate and a higher poverty rate obviously which is this true or no matter where you go throughout the United States and what they're trying to do is just sort of trying to balance that out so all schools would be sort of quote unquote equality in the educational experience so if you go to a school now that might be under performing warm I might be at a level that some argue was good you're going to go to a better school at and what they've done is they've put kids in sort of a random drawing of things a sort of this sort of these policies are

but it's weird been revised several times additionally there were a lot more students that we're going to be affected about seventy five hundred but that number was brought down recent weeks to about fifty four hundred and sherry this means that this will happen for about twenty eight hundred kids at the elementary school level about five hundred and sixty kids at the middle school level and about two thousand at the high school level and some kids who are in their juniors and seniors will be exempt from this whole process to keep it together when they graduate from high school this sounds to a lot of people like forced busing that we've had you know since the seventies a lot of people fought back against that and what it meant has there been a lot of division in this county there's been a lot of division and a lot of outcry from a lot of folks many parents have been telling us been telling me throughout this whole process that you know they feel it's unfair they don't feel they've been listened to by the school district or the school board or anybody who's making these decisions and valet were not in favor of this they just think it's going to mean like you said those our long bus rides a when you buy a house in the school system maybe you want to be close to the school so your kids can be involved in a bunch of different activities well if the schools in our way how is that going to change things and will can still be involved in those types of activities so it is a question of how this is all going to work and whether or not it's going to be equal now the other thing cherry two is when Alexian time comes on and all these folks have to be reelected to the Howard County school board and putting all of those who make the decisions here you know will they face a lot

this is there anything that the parents can do to fight it and are there any parent to actually think this is a good idea well there are some who do you think it's a good idea and they get it I don't think a lot of folks who would say that even though they get it they don't like the way it's being done all they have said they're going to file an appeal and go to court but the school district says the decision is done and they're going to move along with the process here the other thing too it affects as you well know in different schools throughout the country you know your poverty rate and and your economic income rates is certainly affected by how much you received from school lunch money in school education funding that sort of thing so that's all going to get flip flop now and again
