Hey folks- Here in Austin, there's a big freeway which runs down the middle of town, to a large extent dividing the haves from the have-nots. I've lived on the "wrong" side of the freeway several times, and think it's a great part of town, but there's no denying that the schools are generally substandard. One piece of land that looks interesting (read: affordable) for us is in the catchment area of a particularly unattractive high school. I assume that we will have a hard time attracting families with kids if we locate in the catchment area of poor schools. My wife and I homeschool, so the school quality is not a problem for us, and we were wondering what other kinds of solutions have been found to that problem. Are there other cohousing groups that have located in dicey school districts? Have you had trouble attracting families with kids? One of my fantasies is that cohousing will create opportunities for people to deal with the school problem: group homeschooling, a charter school, intervention in the existing schools, etc. Has anyone had experience with this? Thanks, Robert Arjet _______________________________________________ Cohousing-L mailing list Cohousing-L [at] cohousing.org Unsubscribe and other info: http://www.communityforum.net/mailman/listinfo/cohousing-l
