Another world heard from.

Why stick a camera and microphone in his snoot?  The NAACP’s St. Louis metro area chapters have next to no members.  Though since it’s Channel 4 doing it, easily the worst station in town when it comes to being left wing on racial issues, I shouldn’t be surprised.

P-D has more.

The good part about the deseg issue today at least in this context compared to the deseg issue the way it was contested in the 1950s and 1980s is that solving it is as easy as repealing a state law.  No Federal judge caused this.

BTW, if you’re sick of me doing deseg stories, get used to sickness.  Some outlets promise you “complete and comprehensive Lindsay Lohan coverage” when LOLhan gets arrested for something.  I, OTOH, will promise and deliver to you complete and comprehensive deseg coverage.  (That sound you hear is cheering from somewhere on Long Island.)  Because…the height of white crypto-racial political activism in my lifetime has been over deseg.  Even whites in Boston took to the streets over it.

I vote for more deseg stories. This is the kind of crabgrass in the backyard issue that gets people really worked up.

Of those numbers, 168 of the Normandy students have applied for the Francis Howell district. If enrolled, they would make up less than 1 percent of that school system’s 17,000-student population.

And 136 students in Riverview Gardens schools have applied for Mehlville schools, where buses will be sent. If they enroll, they’d make up 1.6 percent of the district’s 10,600-student population. …….Despite hundreds of phone inquiries from parents to other St. Louis County school districts, such as Ritenour, Hazelwood and Ferguson-Florissant, those have no more than a few dozen applications so far.

What these districts are going to end up with is some kind of private taxi cab chauffeur service as parents decide to sent their kids here, there, and everywhere. This is going to get really expensive really fast.

With average tuition costs of $12,000, Normandy would face tuition expenses of nearly $4.5 million if all 374 students who’ve applied to transfer actually do. Riverview Gardens would be out $3.5 million.

“The question is whether Riverview and Normandy can afford to pay the bill,” Senti said.

I would suggest that who ever takes students from Normandy make arrangements to get the money up front, because we know black administrations can be reluctant to pay their bills.

They’ll be able to mass bus them in the morning, but after school, because not everyone goes right home after school, they can bus some but some will have to be given the cabs. There is virtually no public transportation between St. Louis County and St. Charles County, by design, guess why.

They’re trying to make a big deal out of the fact that the transfers from Normandy to FH would only increase FH’s student body by 1%. First off, we know that it’ll be more than 168; that number will swell the closer it gets to the start of the school year. Second, that 1% can cause a lot of trouble if they think they can get away with it.

Keep up the deseg articles. I’m hoping that the outlying school districts continue lowering class sizes.
