Based
on your reading in the webtext, select and respond to one of the
following thesis statements. Your response should be two to three
paragraphs long and should include your position on the issue. Cite at
least three specific pieces of historical evidence.

1. In the long run, busing helped Boston
because it desegregated the school system, provided equal educational
opportunity for minority students, and set the stage for racial healing
and an improved racial climate in the twenty-first century.

2. In the long run, busing hurt Boston
because it led to violent racial strife, contributed to white flight,
and damaged the quality of the public school system.

I decided to go with the second statement.

In the long run, busing hurt Boston because it led to violent racial
strife, contributed to white flight, and damaged the quality of the
public school system.

Busing wasn’t accepted by most people in Boston. The white families
were questioning why it had to be done and it caused more damage than it
did good. It led to violent protests and violence in general. “Stones
and bottles thrown at buses broke the windows and cut children’s skin.
High school students beat each other with fists and clubs. A black man
who happened to be parked near a gang of white youths was dragged from
his car, kicked and beaten until rescued—and only because he was black.”
The busing led to white fight and white parents took their children out
of the public school system to get a “better” education in a public
school setting. This would only hurt the public school system for years
to come.

Busing failed to do anything to improve the education opportunities
for African American children. In fact it seemed to almost make things
worse. Even though the schools are technically desegregated, these
children weren’t being given the same opportunities as other white
children and weren’t learning nearly as much but were still being pushed
onto higher grade levels. This obviously only hurts these children in
the long run and causes so many problems. It’s terrible to think that
there are some public school systems are still struggling with this
issue today.

So I decided to go with the below statement.


In the long run, busing hurt Boston because it led to violent racial
strife, contributed to white flight, and damaged the quality of the
public school system.”

My
view on this source is clear, I feel that children and even in colleges
are fighting to have a better education as it relates to this fight for
real quality education.

“White
Americans started to move from the city, take their children out of the
schools and transfer rates became high” This is very evident that they
felt that blacks were not worthy of receiving the same education as
whites and I feel that this is still happening today. I feel that now it
is a label being slapped on education and that is “Private Schools” it
is a way to say to minorities if you can’t afford our price, You can’t
afford our education. In return public school teachers, are underpaid
and they have to deal with a lot of different things that private school
teachers don’t, and that puts a really bad dent on students and
teachers who really want to change the way we see education in our
communities.

Fierce
resistance in several of the city’s predominantly white neighborhoods
forced state police and National Guard troops to escort African-American
students into the schools, and the ensuing “Boston busing crisis”
roiled the schools, and the city, for years. (Lukas, 1985)

This
is something that really made matters worst when blacks had to be
escorted to schools, just to get an education and this goes back to
today’s time where students have to worry about a mass shooting in a
school. All f the above ties to what is still today a Boston issue in
our country.
