Move students back to track three who were moved

About 20 people from 8th grade track three were place among other tracks today. This will become "permanet" on friday, 7-24. This seems unfair, seeing as many of the student displaced have been in track three scince sixth grade and before! Some students were "deported" although otherwise informed they wouldn't be(ie; we were told we couldn't move if we had siblings in the same track and one of the students moved had a younger sibling on track three). This is also unfair seeing as the student picked had no choice. I find it ludicrious for the school to decide to break up friendships and memories 2 years in the making. However, the school made this descion so that student who have been together for 2 WEEKS could remain together. That doesn't seem right. About 120 students are on track 3 6 th grade currently. If each class had about 33 students in it, that leaves about 21 left over. This is only 1 more than the amount of students having to leave 8th grade track 3. If 7 sixth graders were distributed to each track on 6th grade, that would be just as good, if not better. If the school decides to arrange the students as they have decided today, that leaves the 8th graders with 2 teachers and 4 with 6th graders, both differing from the normal 3 teachers. Many of our friends and peers are now removed from our track. Most of us have been together since 6th grade! I mean no disrespect by this argument. I just want things to go back to how they were.
