Choice vs. peer streaming trade-off??
Original post made by ADL, Another Palo Alto neighborhood, on Jan 25, 2007
As the district is now facing the challenge of placing kids from 3 middle schools into two high school, how about having all the choice-program kids go to the same high school (regardless which middle school they're attending) so that the neighborhood school kids can have priority to stream with their peers from elementary to middle to high school:
Option 1: JLS & Terman to Gunn while Jordan + choice-program kids to Paly
Option 2: JLS + choice-program kids to Gunn while Jordan + Terman to Paly?
Is this a fair trade-off?
