When Schools Can't Keep Up With Development
"In these days of the perpetual metro Atlanta housing boom, fast-growing school systems do more than educate students. They're running some of the busiest construction projects in the state... They also have no say in the rezoning process, where developers are allowed to pile on thousands of new students with a single subdivision, although a test case in Gwinnett County is challenging that. Last month, a developer sued the county for denying a rezoning request near Snellville on the grounds that classrooms in the Brookwood school district were overcrowded."
