Did you grow up in Westhaven or 10th & Page and take the bus to Burnley-Moran Elementary? Education and Families Reporter Tamica Jean-Charles wants to talk with you about it.
Charlottesville City Schools plans to reassign families living in Westhaven to Venable Elementary School. This decision effects a small number of families in the neighborhood, but it comes as an effort to reverse decades of racist school assignment practices. Despite being less than half a mile from Venable Elementary School, Westhaven children have for decades been bussed several miles across town to attend Burnley-Moran.
