|It still allows a "hardship" transfer--such as if you're a single mother and your after-school child care is very close to a certain school you can send your kids there, etc.|
|The implications of the performance tests include an achievement gap between students from lower- and higher-income families, and the possibility of parents being able to remove their kids from failing schools. This issue could also intensify debates over the districting of elementary schools.
“I would love to see a discussion of allowing parents to choose elementary schools,” says Aileen Bartels, the co-president of the parent-teacher organization at Burnley-Moran Elementary.—Paul Fain

I did read the new policy carefully, last year when the school board released it. It still allows a "hardship" transfer--such as if you're a single mother and your after-school child care is very close to a certain school you can send your kids there, etc. But the "academic" transfer is banned. It's a local policy, not a state one.
I'm going to do some research on communities that have allowed public school choice. [/B]
