2. That 1971 Court Order...

requiring forced busing was a landmark decision. However, as a result of a 1999 court decision, race can't be a factor in pupil assignment. [1] Then magnet schools were created to try to reverse the segregated neighborhoods that plague Charlotte today. That had limited success, though as a disclosure, I live in a segregated neighborhood with a magnet school nearby. With the economy as it is, and gentrification spreading out beyond the city center, it will only get worse.

Minor aside, Charlotte is not in West Virginia. There may be one, but it was not corrected in the AP file photo. The photo clearly states North Carolina Public Schools, Mecklenburg County, which all school buses continue to this day.
