…even though you’re not, not really, but then you start to drift away and maybe find another place to go to school.

And then your old school is less diverse at the higher grades, but it’s kind of too late to do anything about it now say the others.

Not complaining, just explaining…

This is the first I’ve seen the signage – URBAN in white. Well, it certainly is.
