Should schools have boundaries, or should families be allowed to attend any school they wish?

I think schools should have boundaries. I live in a certain area for a reason.

Neighborhood schools should have priority for kids who actually walk to school. If you live so far or are so afraid, that you'd rather drive your kid, then it's not much of a community school, is it?

We need more magnet programs for special programs, needs, and alternatives for kids falling behind at their neighborhood school.

tedjulie1, I am not sure if you realize what that would mean. Let's say your family makes $85,000 a year so you are in the 25% fed tax bracket and let’s just say a 6.5% state bracket. 25% of state taxes and .025 of fed taxes go towards education.

That would mean $1921 dollars of YOUR money goes towards his education. Let's be real, that would not get you very far. Public education needs serious help, but just giving you the money you pay in is NOT the answer. Most kids would end up failing.

Enable schools should be geared to the smartest kid in the class. That's why the UK beats the US in academics hands down. We gear to the lowest common denominator. It's embarrassing.

The state should give people their tax dollars back to chose ANY school they see fit for their own child. "We the People" should have the right to chose. Government needs to get out of the way.

Families should be allowed to attend ANY school they wish... including private. Tuition at many excellent private schools is LESS than the amt the state provides p/child, yet the education is top notch! The state could learn from them.
