Quote of the day: JCPS busing 'a colossal failure'

“The education here in Jefferson County Public Schools does not prepare large numbers of students to even graduate from high school, let alone get them ready for higher education.

"While I certainly don't blame it all on the school system, the system of busing students for 'diversity' has been and continues to be a colossal failure.

"Family members who want to be involved in their student's education and activities often cannot because of limitations and access to transportation between home, school and activity locations." --Mary L. Irwin, Letter to the Editor, (Louisville) Courier-Journal, May 24, 2011

Ms. Irwin is right on target.

After 40 years of trying to make busing for integration work, which it has not, any sane person would say it is time to try something else.
