Is Redistricting Fair?

Answer

Personally I don't think redistricting is fair since it seems school 'redistrict' on such a random basis. Children are not just numbers and should not be treated as such.

From my own personal knowledge and perspective, redistricting can be both fair and unfair; just depends on the particular situation. The fair part of redistricting is to help make our representative government work better by more properly connecting certain populations (geographically) with appropriate representation. Where it gets a little unfair is in who decides how the redistricting is done, and at times, it can be done to change the predicted outcome of future elections in the favor of one party or another. There are good reasons, and bad reasons to redistrict, and the bad ones are generally also not very fair.
