The student assignment plan adopted nearly two decades ago by the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools system gave parents choice but at a cost.
The plan increased convenience and cost savings. It made it easier for parents to be involved in their children’s schools and probably helped the district hold on to a larger share of the student population in the county while other large urban districts lost students to private and charter schools.
