Louisville, Ky., school integration efforts safe for now
A couple of months ago, Shan'Taya Cowan got into Harvard. "I just froze," she remembers. The first word she read was, "Congratulations." "And I didn't know what to do because, it was never really an option for me." Cowan is one of the successes of a decades-old school busing program in Jefferson County, Kentucky. For the past four years, she's gotten up early to take a bus to Louisville's Fairdale High School, 15 miles from her home. She says she got a better education because of it.
