No Real Balm to Ease the Pain of Redrawing School Boundaries
Redrawing boundary lines is among the more painful tasks a school board can undertake. It's so painful that in neighboring Montgomery County, the school board does almost anything it can to avoid the process. For example, when it opened a new high school in 1999, rather than draw new boundaries as Howard County is now doing with Reservoir High opening this fall, Montgomery formed a consortium of four high schools and allowed students to choose one. The county is planning to do something similar when it opens another high school in 2004.
