57. This is not necessarily black and white
Edited on Tue Jan-25-11 07:24 PM by karynnj
I KNOW that my town has charged people from a few nearby towns (with weaker school systems) who used an address that they did not live at. Here, the cases I know of were whites and middle class. Wealthy is unlikely because they would either live in a good neighborhood or (like in a large city) send the kids to private school.

In large cities it sometimes happens that the closest high school or middle school IS near projects. I actually know a Chicago mother who is hoping her daughter succeeds into getting into a magnet school - because the "neighborhood" school has major crime problems. If not, she will put her daughter in private school.

The solution is to improve all schools and make them safe.
