Regarding the Dec. 7 news article “ In Wake, busing off the agenda”: The backpedaling by WCPSS school board members in their support of diversity, or lack thereof, is hilarious.
This board was elected by supporters who protested, got themselves arrested, hobnobbed with the NAACP at candlelight vigils and caused a media uproar over the ending of diversity assignments by the 2009 Republican-led school board. And yet now they have come clean. Diversity never really mattered, and high-poverty schools are no biggie.
The cat’s out of the bag: As long as the magnet program is still serving the wealthy, diversity be damned.
