Louisiana Ranks 45 of 50 in Education

Red River Elementary School certainly knows how to deal with potential prejudice:

Nine black children attending Red River Elementary School were directed last week to the back of the school bus by a white driver who designated the front seats for white children.

When I first heard this news, my immediate reaction was that an overreaction was occurring to (probably) a group of disruptive children were told to sit at the back of the bus. And the children – all nine of them belonging to two families – probably happened to be black.

But whatever the truth of the matter, the school system has decided to nip this horrendous discrimination in the bud.

A new solution reached Monday by School Board officials has a black bus driver driving across town to pick up the nine black children.

So now they have a separate bus . . .
