Is Race A Factor In Potential Atlanta School Closings?

The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports on the controversial proposal to close 10 schools in DeKalb County in Metro Atlanta. The 10 schools on the list are all in poor African American areas and are deemed necessary to offset an over $100 million budget shortfall. This is a tough call, because with the proposed closures it's possible for the students to be placed in schools that will provide a better education which is the bottom line.

I am not sure what you mean by a better education. Overcrowding will become a problem and so will transportation. This is a sad situation.
