For years Wake County has had a policy that ensured students would attend diverse schools. Students would be able to go beyond their own social classes and experience views expanding across the entire world by stepping through their school doors at 7:00am. Students were taught that no matter what their class, race or religion, it was possible to unite and form a community that was strengthened by their differences. However, there are plans in motion to change this current system. There are those who wish to build neighborhood schools that would socioeconomically segregate students. Not only would the division between lower-income students and higher-income students cut deeper, but racial diversity could very well take a step backwards by discouraging students to venture beyond their own racial group.
Please, sign this petition and preserve diversification within our schools.
