A Reader Takes Issue With a Statement from CPS About Changes to South Loop Schooling

A reader writes:
What's new here (attached from CPS) is the language about racial diversity: "correcting a historic wrong", pointing out that the new schools with larger district lines would be highly diverse, etc.
That's in response to the criticism from NTA parents who have been saying that the current South Loop School is "for the white families" and that these changes are designed to give "the white South Loop people a high school." In reality the current South Loop School is mostly nonwhite, and both the new larger elementary school and the new high school will be as well. But clearly CPS has felt stung by that accusation regardless of its accuracy.

(Hat tip: PB!)
