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

To add to my earlier comment, I think neighborhood schools shd be limited to people in that area. One thing I love about our school is that my kids will be with the same kids through high school. Our kids have a great sense of community.

I think there should be a combination of both magnet schools to provide other programs and neighborhood schools. I love our neighborhood school, but could see putting my son in a more math based program because that is where his interests/talents are

As a teacher I can tell you boundaries are important. I teach at a popular but very crowded school. There isn't room for extras when people moved to the area to attend our school. We allow open enrollment, but there's a wait list and few openings.

I think there should most definitely be a choice. A lottery takes care of the who gets in process without discrimination. Every child should get the chance to go to a good school. Bad behavior has consequences. If they don't follow them they are out.

Although it might seem unfair, your child must attend a school in the assigned zone. Otherwise, you would have parents moving their kid around each year to chase the test results/Great Schools rating. There should be a few options if possible.

should be allowed to attend any school, i wish I could take my tax dollars with me to private school...maybe if the schools had to compete for your dollars may be they would do a better job...including getting rid of the bad kids....
