SUBGROUP OF STUDENTS.—In this subsection and subsection (d), the term ‘subgroup of students’ means— ‘‘(A) economically disadvantaged students; ‘‘(B) students from major racial and ethnic groups; ‘‘(C) children with disabilities; and ‘‘(D) English learners.
It is clear that a child is considered to be in the “sub-group” if they are not wealthy and White.
PUBLIC SCHOOL CHOICE.— ‘‘(i) IN GENERAL.—A local educational agency may provide all students enrolled in a school identified by the State for comprehensive support and improvement under subsection (c)(4)(D)(i) with the option to transfer to another public school served by the local educational agency, unless such an option is prohibited by State law.
PRIORITY.—In providing students the option to transfer to another public school, the local educational agency shall give priority to the lowest- achieving children from low-income families, as determined by the local educational agency for the purposes of allocating funds to schools under section 1113(a)(3).
TREATMENT.—A student who uses the option to transfer to another public school shall be enrolled in classes and other activities in the public school to which the student transfers in the same manner as all other students at the public school.
SPECIAL RULE.—A local educational agency shall permit a student who transfers to another public school under this paragraph to remain in that school until the student has completed the highest grade in that school.
FUNDING FOR TRANSPORTATION.—A local educational agency may spend an amount equal to not more than 5 percent of its allocation under subpart 2 of this part to pay for the provision of transportation for students who transfer under this paragraph to the public schools to which the students transfer.
When we provide every child in America with a free and public, developmentally appropriate, Arts based, experiential education that concentrates on discovering, developing, and directing their gifts and talents towards becoming knowledgeable, actively engaged citizens of these United States, there will be no need to form sub-groups that are separated from those considered to be the “general” population.
Separation of any kind is discrimination.
