Should they have to "suffer" 13 years?

The residents of these communities are already doing their part by attending elementary school and high school at underperforming schools. Should these children have to "suffer" for their entire 13 years of taxpayer funded, public education? What happened to the concept of neighborhood schools that was mantra of the Board of Education during the recent elementary school redistricting. Residents of these communities pay the same taxes as every other homeowner, yet their high school district is the third farthest high school from their home. And now they are being considered for a middle school district that is the fourth farthest from their home! Yes, you can never please everyone in a redistricting plan, but it's time for some other neighborhoods to travel farther from home to attend an underperforming school!
