FAA Policy Testimony

“Board Members are elected to be leaders. You take an oath to do the best for ALL children. You have an opportunity to make a difference here and now. The FAA policy language should uphold diversity in our schools and steer the Board away from listening only to the loudest voices. Please remember those that do not have a voice. Listen to the kids. Listen to your own conscience.”

John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award recipient Elizabeth Redenbaugh on “neighborhood schools” and segregation

“The last twenty years have seen the erosion of Brown v. Board of Education; however, I stand firm in the conviction separate will never be equal. Moral issues aside, years of research has proven high poverty concentration, which often goes hand in hand with racial isolation, is a recipe for failure. In fact, only 1.1% of high poverty schools are consistently high performing. In the business world, would anyone ever dream of proposing a project with almost a 99% chance for failure? ”
