Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry

Why does Stacy hatch the plan to disable the school bus? What happens as a result of the plan?

Do you think it was a good idea for the children to do what they did? Explain.

The white school gets all the money and nice books. They also get a school-bus.

A Bus passes close to them and forcing them to jump in the slimy, muddy gully to avoid being hit. A furious Little Man tries to throw mud at the schoolbus from which the white children yell "Nigger!" and "Mud eater!" When Jeremy tries to join them walking to school, Stacey ignores him. Stacey decides to dig a ditch across the area that fills with gully water and makes it look as if the road washed out from the rain. I think it's a good plan. I too would be frustrated and tis plan didn't really hurt anyone plus it looked like an accident.
