White Students Forced To Stay In Failing Schools .... Black Students Allowed To Leave

There comes a point in time when you just have to say ....enough. I think we have long passed that point. If this story doesn't convince everyone of the absurdity of the racial politics game in the U.S. I don't know what will.

 Rayville Elementary, Failing Louisiana School, Will Not Transfer White Students Out Because Of 1960s Court Ruling (LETTER)

Rayville Elementary School in Louisiana received a failing grade this year, based on the state's School Performance Scores. Under the state's Public School Choice policy, eligible students in schools flagged as failing and in need of certain levels of improvement can transfer to an "academically acceptable school."
But an interesting and controversial issue has arisen that may actually challenge equal opportunity intended by the law. In a letter to parents dated July 25, Rayville Elementary school officials inform families of the school's "F" grade and list two other institutions -- with letter grades C- and B -- that the parents can choose to transfer their children to. But there'reds a disclaimer:
Please note that white students at Rayville Elementary School will not be allowed to transfer to the listed schools due to the present provisions issued in the federal Richland Parish School desegregation case.
The case in question refers to a 1968 court decision that, in an effort to maintain desegregated schools, prohibits white students from leaving schools if their departure could cause the school to be considered "all-Negro." 


  1. Is this for real ?

  2. This reminds me of something that happened when I was a student in San Pedro High School during the years 1969-1971. A large group of black students were forcibly bused in from a school somewhere in uptown Los Angeles named Gompers - of course all in the name of integration and instigated by the loony liberals of America. Now, bare in mind, the city of San Pedro is a very diverse community. We are already well represented by many different ethnic and racial groups so this was done for the benefit of the Gompers students and NOT for us in San Pedro High School.

    Well, immediately upon hopping off the bus what did the students from Gompers do? They grouped up amongst themselves and it remained so for the last three semesters I was in school before graduating. They never mixed with the students of SPHS as far as I could tell. Kind of defeats the entire idea of "forced busing" doesn't it. Of course you could never explain this to a liberal. The very idea of "forced" integration is ridiculous. It was then and it remains so now - for whatever reason.

    1. yea but to force the white kids to stay to meet a quota .....idiots and if I were the parents I would tell the to KMA
