Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Definitely.  Private schools are very expensive.  Poor people often have zero choices.  You're not allowed to go out of district, and in this sort of situation it's a district decision so swapping to another school isn't an option.  For lesser problems, that's often not an option for transportation reasons.  These are the kinds of issues that the folks behind the charter and voucher programs are making hay out of.

Maybe we can eventually make language a complete impediment to understanding. -Hobbes
