I definitely see the connection between all of these patterns. That is why “school districts” matter so much to homebuyers—there are invisible, yet very powerful lines drawn in the sand to divide communities, and it has larger implications than just the quality of education a child can receive. I really like the idea of schools not being funded by property taxes. I never knew that they were funded by PROPERTY taxes—just taxes in general. It now makes a lot of sense that those who can more easily achieve wealth or relative wealth have access, simply by address, to better education, and therefore opportunities throughout their life.
