more kids from those neighborhoods are going to be bused.
Blacks, however, were bused more often than whites during the previous school year, according to statistics published in the June 18 edition of the Evanston Round Table.
But among the 1,116 students who were bused but were not in districtwide schools or programs, 57 percent were black and 37 percent were white.
A total of 269 children in the 5th Ward were bused that year, nearly half of all the ward's elementary school students.
Cheryl Henry recalled being "a bit upset" when she learned her son was going to be bused two miles to Willard Elementary in the northwest corner of the city.
