I haven't praised George W. Bush in a long time, but the Supreme Court Justices that he appointed, Roberts and Alito, are responsible for the Court's recent decision of Parents Involved in Community Schools v. Seattle School District No. 1 et al, so Bush deserves some kudos (even though Alito wasn't his first choice because he's not an evangelical Christian).
As a practical matter, the city of Seattle enacted a school plan that ensured that all schools were crappy by insisting that no school could be racially imbalanced. Thus, a public school like Stuyvesant High School, which I attended in New York City, would not be allowed in Seattle because any school that uses selective admissions will result in a racially imbalanced school given the big IQ gap between the races. (The IQ gap hasn't changed at all since Brown v. Board of Education. In that case the Court wrote that the IQ gap is evidence that segregated schools were providing unequal education. It turns out that the Court was wrong, all the post-Brown desegregation policies did nothing to change the racial IQ gap.)
The Supreme Court in Parents Involved ruled that it's unconstitutional to take race into account when assigning children to schools. So the Seattle school plan is unconstitutional. A victory for middle class parents who can't afford private school.
Liberals are throwing a huge hissy fit over this ruling. Which is why I hate liberals.
