The splintering of wealthy areas from school districts is speeding up
from Education Week
In the years since the Great Recession, more superintendents have faced dwindling resources and tense arguments over how to allocate them. And in a rapidly increasing number of districts, leaders face fights to keep wealthier clusters of schools from splintering off entirely. The nonprofit group EdBuild finds 27 communities in 13 states attempting to secede from their districts in the past two years. Eleven successfully became new districts, and the rest are locked in ongoing fights, most spilling into the courts and state legislatures.
