Black Alliance For Educational Options At Odds With Justice Department
Parents with students in school districts under federal desegregation orders may have difficulty getting their children to the schools they want them to attend next year after the latest decision.
A U.S. Justice Department filing dealing with desegregation cases in Louisiana requests a federal judge consider not giving out vouchers until an examination has been done of how the system has affected those desegregation districts.
The filing claims their is evidence that the vouchers already given out meant further racial unbalance in 13 districts that are under desegregation orders.
Black Alliance for Educational Options says they think the Justice Department should drop the issue.
They say the voucher program shouldn't be compared to segregation issues of the past.
