Should districts bus students for diversity?

Depends on how bad they want diversity. If for some reason the busing contract is lost then those students will have to find another school possibly at the last minute. I would never put my child on a bus PERIOD.

Our neighborhood school is 70% bused students, I agree with diversity but not if it means classroom overcrowding.

Berkeley is integrated while avoiding the extremes of busing by having a lottery based on regions. No guarantee of neighborhood school, however.

I love the idea of neighborhood schools, like the one I attended, but I want my kid in a diverse environment, like I didn't get -- so yes.

Studies indicate that schools have become more segregated, especially for black and Latino kids, so yes. Not sure why Cary, N.C., changed its mind.

Instead of forcing choices through buses which doesn't work, why not do something positive and offer vouchers.

Bussing is the only way to keep our schools diverse. I don't want my kids to be sheltered from the real world.

The way so many districts bus now has caused so many families to leave public schools. I like the idea of voluntary busing.
