For what it's worth, I don't think Hitt knew the number of students who had transferred. He might also not have known that Lewisville kids already attended Garden Ridge.
At any rate, I don't think the parents of the kids there at Garden Ridge have anything to worry about for their kids. Chances are that the kids who transferred are those with more involved parents, and who are higher-performing.
Though we don't have any figures for this, if I had to venture a guess, I would say it's likely that a disproportionate number of the students transferring were non-Hispanic. This kind of thing enables a sort of reverse-integration of schools.
