OpinionJournal – Cross Country has an interesting piece on Minneapolis African American families voting with their feet. How does it relate to Shaw? The black middle class is no different than the white middle class when it comes to their kids’ education. Just not willing to sacrifice their/our children’s future for the sake of [black unity, supporting public education, giving the city a chance, pick one]. Some old timers may want the neighborhood to stay black, but I’ve noticed, for many of the old timers, their kids are grown and have already gone through DCPS. Seems that middle class African American parents, like the Minneapolis parents, may choose not to move in traditionally black neighborhoods, or just the city in general, because of the schools.
