I read on another listserv that Laura Meckler, an education reporter from the Washington Post, is working on a story about the D15 Diversity Plan and would like to talk to parents impacted this year. She would especially like to hear from families with a child assigned a school perceived to be "better" or "worse" than where they would have been likely placed under the old system.
If you're interested in discussing your experience, you can email her directly at email@example.com.
If anyone is looking to get this DL screw up out there in the news, this might be a way. I don't know Ms Meckler, and I'm not familiar with her work -- just passing this along.
