Where I used to teach (maybe a national thing, not sure), but if your local school was ranked in the bottom 10% of the state, you were allowed to choose any other school as long as you provided transportation. I moved right next to the school a year after I stopped working there, 0 kids in my (predominantly white, gentrified) neighborhood attended the school I used to teach at.
The school’s demographics were something like 90% black and almost everyone else was Hispanic. They did not have the financial means to bus away from this school. It’s hard to get teachers in a school like that, very hard to retain them if they do well. In the end, it ends up segregated and becomes a cycle.
