Brown flight to follow white flight
Dear Editor:The only thing “disappointing” and deceptively racist in the decision by the Carbondale Board of Trustees and Fred Wall not to support the formation of the Ross Montessori School is that they don’t give the parents of the 60 percent Latino student population credit for doing what’s best for their children. The “white flight” from Carbondale Elementary will be a result of the poor academic standing of that school. I predict a “brown flight” from Carbondale Elementary as well. Parents want what’s best for their children, Anglo or Latino, charter, private or public school. Support of this alternative form of education is about freedom of choice and quality education for each child, not white vs. brown.Maura McKenna Masters Carbondale
