I thought you said "Columbus was too cold"....but then you mention Pittsburgh, which is just like Columbus (neither are "too cold", in my opinion -- far from it, actually).

I believe that if you go with Pittsburgh, I'd say its East Side and maybe parts of the Penn Hills and Woodland Hills SD's could or would work. In Cincinnati, maybe the Winston Woods SD and some of the surrounding school districts would work. Perhaps the Fairfield, Finneytown, Colerain, Princeton City, Northwest and MT. Healthy could work too. Forest Park is a Cincinnati suburb that is about 60% Black and has a below average poverty rate.

Perhaps Cleveland, Louisville, Lexington KY, Knoxville TN and Chattanooga TN may work as well.

You got me there, I didn't even think about that all the way through. I guess as long as it is not Chicago cold, than I'm okay. I had to laugh at myself on that one.

Hmmm... ckhthangod, your just throwing out a ton of good suggestions. I think since its summer I might want to take a couple of weekend trips to scout of some of the cities you've mentioned. Do you have any personal experience with any of the cities you've suggested? Thanks for the links as well

Much of the information comes from knowing people that live in these areas or looking at areas that fit some of the criteria mentioned. I have visited some of the areas too. Looking at information, like the websites I posted, could help to line up criteria that you are looking for.
