I'd say it's perfectly fine. The only problem would be if you start busing people who are an hour away. If you want to go to that school, sure, but if you'd like to go to a much closer public school that's just as good, why should you have to get up that extra hour earller?

i guess yall dont understand what busing means. It means that they will bus kids out of the inner city(minoroties) into the suburbs in order to reach a racial balance in schools.

why should they. The parents that live outside of the city live there for a reason,,,better schools less crime. Why bring that to the suburbs where the people pay not to be around this.(be real inner cities do have a high rate of crime which is always found with poverty..it is not really a racist thing) most states pay for schools with a property tax. The reason inner city schools are of less value in education funding is bc you have high density housing like apartments and condos and town homes and projects. IN one acre of apartments you might have about 10 kids that go to school..so one acre of property tax is paying for kids to go to school..whereas in the suburbs one acre of land will have one family with three kids going to school so one acre of land is paying for three kids education. This would unbalance school funding in the district where the kids are being bused to. This is unfair to the people that pay property tax on there own one acre of land so there kids can get a better education.

if they are so scared of their kids going to school with black kids, then they can definitly afford sending their kids to private schools

Busing kids to encourage racial balance is stupid.  Im sure the kids riding the bus for hours a day do not like it.  I think that kids should go to school with the people they live around, and not a bunch of inner city kids.  Im not a racist, but when I was in school, I was not too fond of the inner city kids.  Many of them would go to school just to cause trouble, not to learn.  When I was in middle and elementary school, inner city kids would distract classes from learning, and the teacher would spend  too much time to discipline these kids.  Such a waste of time.  My parents lived outside the city to avoid these problems.  My mother even said that if she knew what public schools were like before she sent me and my sisters there, we would have gone to private school.
