Radioactivity: Live Call-In (Wednesday) | Listen to this entire show:

The Pinellas School Board is discussing a new student assignmnet plan. And some people feel it will return the schools to the days of racially-divided, separate and unequal schools.

Joining us for this hour: community activist, publisher and one-time NAACP board member Gypsy Gallardo.

Gallardo described the various points of people have regarding returning to neighborhood schools, which will inevitably be more divided along ethnic lines.

For more information:

A school board workshop is scheduled on Nov. 6; Nov. 13, Nov. 30, Dec. 11 and Dec. 30 are school board meetings. The board will vote at the Dec. 30 meeting. For more about the battle to stop the plan or for a ride to any of the above meetings, call Gypsy Gallardo, co-chair of The PACT at (727) 866-0873; or Norm Brown, NAACP president at (727) 898-3310.
