School And The Suburb
"Austin voters will decide whether the school district should spend $520 million...to build eight new schools and upgrade, expand, and repair the rest. Should all six propositions pass, it would increase the property taxes on a median-priced...house by roughly $6 a month.
Building and improving schools sounds nearly as wholesome as putting a free-range chicken in every pot but figuring out where to build and improve...is much, much harder.
The placement of schools undeniably influences urban growth but it's hard to say how much."
