Apparently whites are a growing population in South Dade (to an extent) because there are new private schools being built all over the place down there. I don't blame people for not wanting to send their kids to the horrible schools down there... Look at all the new private schools being built around Keysgate that are K-8. They are a testament to what everybody knows about South Dade schools - they are "prison jungles"...

Keys Gate, Florida - Same latitude. Different world.#

So in essence you are saying that white people are the only ones privvy to private schools. They are the better people overall who aren't capable of being "ghetto". It can never be the white families that contribute to a school becoming a prison jungle

Lately you have made made your prejudices loud and clear. Seriously, what the hell? I am "white" myself and I can't believe how you so readily insinuate that "white" = good, non-ghetto and "non-white" = ghetto.

Believe it or not there is new construction going around all of South Dade that does not happen in the northern neighborhoods. Throughout Homestead, Naranja, Cutler Bay, and, hell, even Florida City there are brand new suburban style neighborhoods being built. Oddly enough, however, they are often randomly placed in the middle of ghettos (as there was land available there, as opposed to the northern areas which are all built up).

This still can bring potential to South Dade, though aside from some nice areas is not the greatest place to live.

Well, no you couldn't really blame white people for creating "prison jungle schools" if they don't even go there...your rhetorical statement makes no sense. The whites who do live in South Dade pay disproportionate taxes to fund schools their kids don't even attend and these schools are STILL bad. What gives?

Don't make white people villains because they can afford (or bend over backwards financially) to send their kids to a good school. Those who can afford (not only whites) to bypass Miami-Dade's low scoring - ghettoized schools have all the right to do so.

Although true in some instances, don't forget the HIGH SCORING (at NATIONAL level) Miami-Dade public schools like MAST Academy and New World.

Most of those new schools are not private schools, they are charter schools.

That's actually a good debatable subject. What is technically considered South Dade? My thesis would be probably most similar to compelled to reply's. But what would be the facts? Also, what is the whole area from Coconut Grove until the Dadeland area along/near the US-1 to be considered? I mostly call them Southeast Dade (it most probably isn't SW Dade - would geographically and demographically make no sense at all / South Dade clearly isn't).

So what people get gentrified, because they can't afford the subsequent new developments, that doesn't mean they are riff-raff, the op statement is preposterous. Miami Gardens is not all bad there are good areas, I believe the consolidation will help the city as it will take time, 10 years is not that long. I believe we are seeing a prodigious exodus out of Overtown, although developments like Crosswinds and other developments were halted that would have been a whole new look for that area.

The problen Miami does have is with immigration, with an influx of low-skilled workers will accept low pay jobs with the rising cot of housing adding to the poverty of Miami which in the core city is high, this is what has to stop. Just because people are poor does not mean they are riff-raff or the color of their skin.
