I wonder if you live in an area like mine? I am in Petworth, and my in-boundary school would be Truesdell, which I understand is not very good. With how quickly my neighborhood is gentrifying, the million dollar question is, how do we get these active and engaged parents/students to attend their in-boundary schools, and do it in large enough numbers to reach a tipping point, making those same schools good?

How do you reach that tipping point? 10 years from now, you are going to have 10 years of home sales whever everything has gone for north of $300,000, and presumably a very solid upper middle-class neighborhood. When does Truesdell get to the tipping point, whee it becomes another good neighborhood school?
