Aliceville, Alabama

"There are the private schools... and there are the public schools. They're really divided.  And the public schools- they've got bad test scores.  I would have sent my girls to the public schools- but they would have been the only white students there.  And even though I wanted to do it... it is really hard being some of the first ones.  But I know our schools would be better if everyone went the the same one.... it is just hard to do.  So yeah- I sent my girls to the private one instead."
