Courts have the responsibility to create racially balanced schools
Debate Rounds (3)
In Boston public schools were segregated by race, and the only way to desegregate them was by the court-odder in 1947 that made busses transfer the kids to other school. Blacks and whites were not happy with this decision, and if they were not forced to do it, they would have never done it willingly. There are a lot of benefits to having racially balanced schools; one is that everybody gets better and equal education.
Assertion #2: Students and society also benefit when more children are able to attend racially integrated schools.
Schools prepare kids for the diverse world that we live in. Also people would view each other equally; no one would have more privileges or more power than other.
Assertion #3: Courts may not end segregation completely but it can reduce the effect of racial discrimination.
Since no one but the judge has the power to force school to be more diverse, this is the only way to make a change. People may not like it at first but eventually people will get used to it.
Courts should not be able to create racially balanced schools!
-Students and society will not benefit when more children are able to attend racially integrated schools. Courts believe that it will; and they use surveys to get "Answers". But surveys may not be 100% accurate. On top of that, they only surveyed African Americans and Latinos. If you want accurate answers, then actually test a school that is DIVERSE (that"s the whole point right?) You may believe that it will benefit students and society when students are able to attend racially integrated schools" but groups don"t stick together even in a diverse school students tend to stay within themselves.
Judges should not be able to tell parents where their children must attend school.
-In what world should we allow judges to make decisions on where OUR children go to school? (Speaking for parents) That literally takes away everyone"s rights. Not only do parents miss out on the schools quality, but also in the location. Judges should give parents CHOICES! If judges gave parents 6 choices on where their child can attend school; that"ll equality in education! This is what every child deserves! " Don"t you think?
Race should not be used as a basis for school assignment.
Why should race be used as a basis for school assignment anyway? That creates segregation and leads to people feeling left out when that can all be avoided. If race was actually used as a basis for school assignment then that would create an achievement gap between black and white students and that goes against "Browns Promise" of equal educational opportunities. That"s not fair! Parents just wants\better education for their kids; but also want their kids to feel what it"s like to be in a diverse community. If race were not used as a basis; Children will be less lonely, safer, and academics improve! This is what every parent wants for their child.
How would people not benefit from this?
If the judges allow parents to choose the schools their kids attend, wouldn"t the parents just choose schools that have the same ethnic background as them?
Are you sure that people pro racially balanced schools are creating the "gap between and white students"? Aren"t you guys the once separating them?
Question #2 You say that no one would have more power, but how are you so sure that no one would get bullied in the school ?
Question#3 Why should we force people do something they don't want to do ? there is something called". RIGHTS!
In the beginning of course kids are going to stick with people the same race as them, but as time passes they will eventually get accustomed to it and start getting along with each other. Kids adapt to new environment easily, and the more they are exposed to diversity at the schools the more comfortable they are going to be with the idea.
Answer to #2:
I am not saying that people aren"t going to get bulled. Bullying doesn"t mean you have more power than the other person. People that attend school that have mostly the same ethnic background as them still get bullied. When I say equal power I mean they will have the same education and will have the same opportunity to develop economically in the future.
Answer to #3:
We are forcing people to attend other schools for the better. We are not trying to hurt them in anyway. Right now people might not see the benefits from this but in a couple of years you will be thanking us.
2.Why should we have just one school that"s not racially balanced ? why cant people have options? YES ! they would choose a school with the same ethnicity" but there should be more than one.
3.My fault CLARY >:O ". Anyways. What I meant to say was that, Race should be used as a school assignment. Therefore everyone that attends the school and wont feel left out because your around your own kind. Everyone would feel comfortable, and wont have to worry about a certain race thinking their stronger. So that answered your question :)
