PS 307 STILL SEGREGATED

By LILY WILSON

One year after the controversial rezoning of kindergartens within New York, parents are still struggling about where to choose to send their kids to school. The rezoning took place as an effort to further integrate the PS 307 Kindergarten, since it was mostly made up of minorities; however it is currently being called into question, as people may be avoiding sending their kids to the school because of the racial makeup.

“My fear is that despite the rezoning, white parents aren’t going to come to this school because of its demographi­cs,” said Faraji Hannah-Jones, a former Parent-Teacher Association co-president whose daughter attends the school.

Although statistics about the racial makeup of the school have not been released yet, education officials predicted that the amount of minorities attending school at PS 307 would drop from 90 percent to around 55 to 60 percent over several years, without specifying how many years it would take. Trends show that more whites will join.
