Of your three options, Alabama is trying #1: once the school is deemed a failure, all students are allowed to leave if they wish. The Federal laws are
trying to force #3.
Number 2 has been tried. It's not like these schools woke up one morning to an announcement that they are failing schools... these schools have
records of performing badly for quite some time. If it were possible to fix them from within, they should be showing at least signs of improvement.
The sad fact is that between the NEA and various social engineering programs, it has become impossible to fix the problems legally.
Thus my support of the Alabama Accountability Act... we tried #2, it didn't work. #3 does nothing to fix the problem, but rather maintains the status
quo. #1 has not been tried... and apparently can't be tried because of #3.
If the problem lies with the students, then you would be correct in that this will simply spread the problem to other schools. But if the problem lies
with administration in the schools, moving the children will fix the problem. It is even possible that moving the children will break up relationships
that have become counter-productive... think back to your school days. Bullies and troublemakers always ran in groups. Break up the groups and you
decrease the arrogance of the troublemakers.
