Look at this quote from Jim Martin:

“Let’s look at bringing neighborhoods together and evening achievement,” Martin said.
N&O - October 31, 2012

Once again we are back to the pre-2009 assignment by diversity policy. Note that he talks about spreading around/"evening" achievement. We are back to the place where we focused not on addressing the challenges facing socio-economically disadvantaged students but rather spreading them around like pawns in a statistical chess game. This "nationally recongized" policy resulted in a stellar
54.2% graduation rate for socio-economically disadvantaged students in Wake County.

We await for scientist Jim Martin's data showing how the former diversity assignment Policy 6200 improved academic performance. Since you are building a new assignment policy based on "evening achievement," let's see your data set.
