You're out of your element, and are posting about something you have no clue about.

The proposed new school district is in an area where no one really lives. Most live in the western portion of the area in dispute. The eastern portion is populated with retail. A large portion of LA sales taxes go to schools. What they are doing, in fact, is attempting to steal retail revenues from the city of Baton Rouge while re-drawing their district to include "their" population with the retail revenue needed to support "their" schools, even though "their" consumption isn't the only thing that drives revenue in that area.

If you don't see what's wrong with that, well...

I'm not surprised! Because you're cut!
