Hi 2sleepy. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.nyt...cisco.amp.html Sorry, but if I have to “tolerate everything” in the name of social justice, I’m going to be stuck in an area where have to “tolerate everything.”

Most states have great schools and mediocre schools, but the best schools are almost always in the most expensive areas. If the OP wants to ensure that his/her kids will be in highly rated schools they should probably move to El Dorado Hills or Rocklin, Folsom and Roseville also have good schools but if they move to part of either of those towns that borders a lower income area their neighborhood school will reflect that.
Nah not true. Many states, even in the pricey northeast, have affordable middle class areas, with good schools that rate 9-10 on great schools.net, and are within an hour or less(during rushhour) of major job centers.

What it is, is that the better schools are always in areas where professionals live. Sac region is just so blue collar/working class that these type of areas with good schools are not prolific. Now in Silicon Valley these schools are a dime a dozen.

I didn't make this up, I sourced it. Argue with the data if you disagree or better yet provide your own to disprove it. And by the way, the salaries of professionals is almost always higher than blue collar workers, so if anything you made my point for me. The higher the average income the better the schools.
