JCPS and the Supreme Court

So I just read that the Supreme Court struck down Louisville's school desegregation policy. As one of the more segregated cities in the US (if not one of the most), I daresay this will lead to a resegregation of our school system. Now all of the rick white kids can stay safely within their own neighborhoods and never have to talk to anyone who is different from them in any way. Sheesh. I went to elementary school downtown and had an EXCELLENT education. I was always around kids who were different. So a kid was denied his first choice school. Big deal. Whatever happened to the greatest good for the greatest number? I'm sure this kid found another school where he's doing quite well. I didn't get to go to my first choice of college, but I didn't sue. And I had am amazing experience. I have three words for him and his mom: get over it. You don't always get what you want in life, and if you can't learn to live with some situations you'll be awfully unhappy. Grrr. Needless to say I'm a bit annoyed.
