The Buffalo News reports on public high schools' inequities that go beyond the expected differences stemming from a city or suburban location. The reporters analyzed state data on state aid and high school taxes, as well as a self-created database containing comparisons of about 40 criteria for 58 schools. The major findings include that some wealthy school districts are getting more state aid funds than they qualify for; that some of the school districts with the highest taxes have the most limited curriculums; and that the school district of the City of Buffalo suffers from lack of consolidation and the existence of too many schools.
