Academic Achievement Driving Integration System

Wake County Public School System has been known for its socioeconomic integration. In 2000, Wake adopted a system that aimed to have a mix of children with a 60 to 40 percent rich to poor ratio in each school, based on the number of students who required subsidized lunch.

In 2009, the Wake school board voted to discontinue using socioeconomic integration in an effort to have kids attend a school nearer their neighborhood. Now, civic leaders have proposed implementing an integration system based on achievement. The achievement integration system might have a 70 to 30 percent ratio with 70 percent of students who have scored proficient on state tests and 30 percent who have scored below grade level.

Is this integration based on achievement a worthy substitute? Is it an even better solution?
