Heavens! She must come from a place where school boards actually plan for the future. I thought tales of such places were apocryphal!
More mysteriously, two parents say that they have already transferred their children out of their attendance zones: one from Whitesides and Laing to Mt. Pleasant Academy and Moultrie; the other from Park West schools to Jennie Moore and Laing. These aren't magnet or even semi-magnet schools, so why the transfers? How many other parents in Mt. Pleasant have behaved similarly?
The whole transfer business in CCSD opens a can of worms. For example, why do the majority of students attending Memminger not live in its attendance area? Parents wanted in to a failing school? Why do so many students attending Burke High/Middle live outside of its attendance zone? It's a failing school also.
