    I received a free e-ARC of this book from netgalley. This book shows several different POVs during a town's school desegregation in the south. One main character is a white teacher newly-married to a Hispanic man. Another main character is a black teacher at the same school and the other main character is a black male about to graduate high school/5(52). The total year cost of busing runs into the hundreds of millions of dollars. City Councilor Peggy Davis-Mullen claims that ending forced busing would save the city $20 million annually on transportation. If families had greater choice in education, they could opt for schools closer to home, reducing the need for school buses.

      More than three decades after a federal court order forced Boston to desegregate schools by busing black students to white neighborhoods and whites to black areas, the birthplace of public. A major factor in many areas was the implementation or threat of forced busing, as many parents perceived it necessary to move to the suburbs to ensure their childrens safety and education quality. During the s, public school enrollments dropped million, while the number of school children bused to school rose million, a negative.

      In the first Democratic presidential debates, Sen. Kamala Harris of California defended forced busing back in the s as a civil rights triumph . In the city of Tel Aviv replaced its existing school integration program based on inter-district busing, with a new program that allowed students to choose freely between schools in and out of district. This paper explores the impact of this program on high school outcomes while distinguishing the effect of choice on individual students from general equilibrium effects on affected districts.

Sen. and Democratic presidential primary candidate Kamala Harris (Photo by Al Drago/Getty Images) In the first Democratic presidential debates, Sen. Kamala Harris of California defended forced busing back in the s as a civil rights triumph and criticized former Vice President Joe Biden for racial insensitivity for once opposing the policy.

The fights over school busing of the s seem like ancient history, given that they raged when Kamala Harris was a child and in the early days of Joe Biden's Senate career.

But busing. ‘Forced busing’ didn’t fail. Desegregation is the best way to improve our schools. Racial achievement gaps were narrowest at the height of school integration.

It is the transportation of schoolchildren by bus to schools outside their neighborhoods, as a means of achieving racial integration. Forced busing is considered as an appropriate means of achieving integrated schooling.

As someone who was a victim of court-ordered busing, I applaud Joe Biden for his stance against forced busing in the past (“How Biden Became the Anti-Busing Democrat,” front page, July 15).
