Constitutional Question: SHOULD THERE BE PUBLIC SCHOOLS OPEN TO ONLY ONE RACE?
Case: Clawson V. Balitmore County School District. Bob Clawson applies to have his white son, Peter, admitted to an all black male public charter school in Baltimore. The school is having good success rates at raising text scores in this economically disadvantaged neighborhood , and this economically disadvantage white parent wants the chance to see if his son benefits from the same program. The school does not admit Peter, and the father sues the Baltimore county school District, claiming discrimination and a violation of his rights.
Who do I rule with: Clawson
I believe this is unfair, by allowing public schools to be open to only one race is promoting segregation and we as America should be promoting diversity.But back to this specific case we are also depriving children of the best education they can possibly recieved. In the consituition we are granted the right not to be discriminated base on race, religion, gender, etc, etc, but in this case what are we doing?
