Eden Prairie School Boundaries
The Eden Prairie school board voted Wednesday to take back a decision that would have redrawn elementary school boundaries for purposes of racial diversity.
The vote to overturn the plan came after the U.S. Supreme Court decided race should not be a factor in school assignments, according to the Star Tribune.
The Eden Prairie school board wanted to shift school lines in order to balance out non-white student enrollment.
For example, Prairie View Elementary is 19 percent non-white while Forest Hills Elementary has a minority student population of 42 percent, reports the Star Tribune.
The decision last spring would also have eliminated the district's fifth and sixth grade intermediate schools, but residents were strictly opposed to the idea, according to the Star Tribune.
