Spring High School stabbing: Will demographics change more?

Recommended Posts

After the Spring High School stabbing, it is possible that more affluent families will leave Spring ISD for good. I know the demographics have been changing for a while but this will do it even more.

This event highlights what the suburbs are already going through (and will continue to see increase). It's a fact that lower income families are flooding the suburbs as land in the city gets more expensive. This pattern is occurring everywhere around the country (and has already done so in Europe). Spring was a nice HS back when I was at Cy-Creek, but it sounds like they have a serious gang problem now. Give it another 10-15 years and I believe you'll see problems even crop up in the Woodlands, Sugar Land, Cinco Ranch type areas as well.

I totally agree. People always cite better schools when moving to the suburbs, but what now? Will they move even further out? At a certain point it makes more sense to stay in the city and swing for a private school or try to get into a charter school if you're faced with a 2hr commute each way.

Considering that the victim was a black student and the suspects were Latino, it's likely the older, more affluent whites will leave Spring ISD and head towards either Katy ISD or somewhere like Waller ISD.

Since this is a northside district, it's better to compare it to other northside ones: Conroe ISD, Klein ISD, and to stretch things, Magnolia or Willis??

Incidents will these will cause people like Dan Patrick (running for Texas Lieutenant Governor) to call for "Law & Order" in being tough on crime.
