NOHO SCHOOL BUDGET CUTS DUE TO HIGH WHITE STUDENT PERCENTAGE SPARKS OUTRAGE
Outrage has grown at Walter Reed Middle School in North Hollywood, as the school faces layoffs and increased class sizes due to a law limiting funds for schools with a higher white student body.
The Los Angeles Unified School District provides more funding for schools where the white population is below 30 percent.
In a letter to parents, the district noted the highly regarded middle school had been above the percentage for the past couple years.
The racial formula was a condition imposed by court decisions dealing with desegregation in the 1970s.
“The highly regarded middle school had been above 30% white for the past couple of years.”
I wonder if these two things could be related.
I tend to think that this is the only LAUSD school that is above 30% white. And, to get to that, some marginally Caucasian sorts of peoples have to be counted as “white,” I am guessing.
Still and all, they’re stuck in the current year with rules that some judge made up out of thin air four decades ago. Since the wheels in the judiciary system turn slowly, I surmised that the court case that led to the Federal judiciary’s decisions in the 1970s lasted for at least a decade, and it didn’t take me long to figure out that the case was all based off of where some black girl wanted to go to school in 1961. So we have rules still being enforced in the uber-diverse Los Angeles of 2017 based on the paradigms of the very simple bimodal native born white American slash native born black American racial reality of the Los Angeles of 1961.
