Another thing I was interested to learn was the inequality in education that arose in the 1950s. Communities today are still struggling with the problems suburbia created during this time. One example, is the proposal of the "Learning Community" in Omaha. As the years go by, the rich have gotten richer in West Omaha, and the poor have gotten poorer towards the city center. Of course this creates disparities in education funding and Omaha's best solution to this problem was to integrate the funding and allow children from the "inner city" to attend better schools out west if they wanted. West Omahans, however, didn't want their tax dollars going to schools other than those in their district. After all, they moved to these districts for their good school systems and they wanted to protect their investments.
So, my question is, could this inequality have been avoided? Was it inevitable this would happen during a population boom?
