As usual a nice little puff piece and all sorts of good intentions. But no mention of the policy change that ended the notion of the neighbourhood school. At one time schools had catchment areas. Now parents have the “right” to send their kids anywhere. So are we surprised that more parents – and high school students – drive a lot more? Ending the stupidity of this change might well recreate the spectre of people moving to be within the catchment of a “good school”, but that is, in my view, the lesser of two evils.
