It's official: Plano and Highland Park suck.

Reading the DMN, locally, schools are opening their doors to transfer students, especially at the elementary level, waiving normal requirements (since all the records that would normally be required are, well, underwater), and otherwise doing their neighborly best to help out...

except for Plano and Highland Park. Plano has said "wait at leasta week," and Highland Park's response has effectively been, particularly for the munchkins, "go away."

On the one hand, it's unfortunate... but on the other, it's ... typical.

Hey, thanks for confirming those stereotypes, you white-flight Stepford jackasses! Good job!

(If you're not local, these are the parts of the Dallas metroplex that crinkles their noses at my home of Irving for having too much "white trash" and immigrants.)

Hey, I live in Plano. PISD happens to be one of the best districts and we want to keep that. Oh, wait. We transfer kids here. My friend moved here. The next day, she had a schedule and all for school.

And who crinkles their noses at Irving? Who important is even from Irving? A Cowboys player? So what? Plano has 3, maybe 4. No one crinkles their noses at Irving anyway. Plano has many immigrants but no white trash. Irving has white trash (just not as bad as other places).
