Letter: Developments are squeezing our schools

Where do all the new school children come from? I do not mean the "birds and bees," I mean many children come from the new housing developments.

A few years ago, I lived in California and in the area that I lived in, every new house build had a special fee put on it of approximately $3,000 that went directly to the schools for building new schools, teachers and supplies, etc.

This seems a fair way to raise money for schools and should be a better way for older folks that live on fixed incomes. They have paid school taxes to educate their children.
