  1. I wonder where Columbia schools rate on the poverty index. Wouldn’t surprise me if we didn’t have the most poverty and the highest taxes. In addition, 25% of Columbia students are classified as special education. I doubt there is a “successful” school system anywhere that face these challenges; if there is we need to find it and study it closely. More money is not the answer; there is no more to give at least not from higher property taxes.
