From the Paper:

"Miami schools are experiencing disproportionate enrollment increases, and the increases have brought about the need for Miami to redraw the lines of its school districting boundaries t accommodate the changes in increased student enrollment for certain schools. In many instances, the new boundaries mean children who attended a particular school during the previous school year, will attend new schools in the upcoming school. The idea of redrawing the boundaries has, predictably, met with a vocal response from concerned citizens. Parents are concerned about their children going into unfamiliar areas of the city to attend school, and are worried about racial and cultural differences, which could put their children at a learning disadvantage. Also, some children who once lived within blocks of their school will now be taking buses."
