Public School Districts in America, and Their Funding by Property Taxes

As learned from George during the first Jamica Plain pond walk,

  • Every American public school has a region designated as public school district.
  • A certain percentage of the Property tax collected within a district funds the public school of that district.
  • There by a closed loop effect is generated, not necessarily a visious circle, such that affulent neighborhoods have better public school, and regions with better public school attract higher income families within a limited area, which results in rise of property prices.
