Interesting situation the Guilford County Board of Education pondered at last night’s meeting—- how to fund transportation to magnet schools* after Title I money dries up due to the phaseout of NCLB sanctions. Of course the option of cutting off transportation the magnet schools altogether is always there, but board chairman Alan Duncan said “that is very troubling to me from an equity standpoint.”
*My source inside Jones Elementary tells me there’s a rumor going around that if Mitt Romney wins the election, he’s going to close magnet schools.
