Inane Headlines on Supreme Court School Ruling
As a follow-up to my previous post, I thought I'd take a look at the inane headlines for coverage of the 5-4 ruling today that restricts school districts from using race to manage school populations. Time and the Los Angeles Times are real howlers:
- High Court rejects public school diversity plan (AP via Chicago Sun-Times)
- Supreme Court rejects public school diversity plans (USA Today)
- Supreme Court Limits Integration Plan (AP story via Time.com)
- Supreme Court strikes down school integration policies (LA Times)
Oh, and the Detroit Free Press goes with this gem: "Supreme Court rules race cannot determine school choice."
Two things: Hasn't that been the law of the land since Brown v. Board of Education, and, since when is it school "choice" when its a government body that selects for you where you MUST attend school?
