She is a horrible choice. She is arrogant and refuses to listen to reason. She doesn’t even send her kids to their neighborhood schools while extolling the virtues of neighborhood schools! Hypocrisy at its worse!

John – fair until you consider which parents navigate that system and to what effect…

The process often leads to further segregation by race and class. The system is flawed as is the zoning. It was created by a school board trying to placate and retain an upper/middle class clientele but instead created more segregation. I don’t blame her for using it. I blame a school board pandering to white and affluent parents instead of creating systems to actually address the abject poverty and trauma that plagues the city.

Critical anonymous posts hold little value. Kudos to Kirsten for putting herself out there to make a difference. It’s not easy to do!
