U.S. District Judge Brian S. Miller stunned parties in the 28-year-old Pulaski County school desegregation lawsuit Thursday by releasing the state from its obligation to pay for desegregation efforts in the three school systems — except for the majority-to-minority interdistrict student-transfer program.

    Cabot, Conway, Mayflower, Bryant, Benton, and other neighboring school districts as well as private schools, get ready for another inflow from central Arkansas.

    The judge was correct. I think all state funding for the purposes of desegregation should be abolished. Little Rock and the Pulaski School districts are a mess--charter schools have recently closed due to poor management, and changing schools that have failed to meet NCLB mandates for 7 years into magnet schools does not help. The big issues lie within the individual schools administrations and the school boards of both districts. It is time that the people in charge of educating the children of Little Rock and Pulaski school districts stop promoting their own personal agenda's and make educating the kids a priority. I'm glad the funding was cut--the entire state of Arkansas should not have to pay for the mismanagement of the Little Rock and Pulaski school districts.
