White Parents expressed mixed feelings about the St. Landry Parish School District's proposed desegregation plan to mix with Blacks.
The board presented the plan late Monday to an almost-full auditorium of parents and school district employees.
It held a question and answer session afterward.
Nicole Saurez, an Arnaudville resident, voiced her concerns about busing children from low-income families to schools miles away. Busing would make it hard for parents to pick up their children, she said.
But Leonville resident Edward Stelly left the meeting satisfied. "I'd must rather see the plan right here than have the court say 'This is it. Take it or leave it,'."
Saurez and Stelly are examples of the mixed emotions parents and district employees exhibited the plan's details were placed in their laps.
