Since Randy Clegg is leaving at the end of the month, this is a perfect time for him to propose something like this. As he takes his overly generous taxpayer provided pension plan and rides off into the sunset, parents will be forced into watching their child ripped out of the school down the street to satisfy a misguided liberal urge for fairness and diversity. This experiment failed in Minneapolis and was abandoned by an African American mayor twenty years ago. An effort like this in Eden Prairie led to the resignation of the school superintendant who forced her simialr views down the throats of the parents in the school district. When a couple works hard their entire lives and moves into a nice neighborhood with nice schools for their kids, why should we rip their kids out of those schools? Isn't it enough that these same parents are providing the tax money to give to other peoples kids in the form of section 8 vouchers, free or reduced price lunches, free schooling for their kids, food stamps and a myriad of other social programs??? What happened to the voice of Martin Luther King and his "Let's not judge a person by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character?" When government is big enough to give everything away to our citizens, it is big enough to take everything away. This article makes your stomach crawl and your hair stand on end.
