1. Poll families about applying to public school vs. private.
2. Poll families about leaving the city after X years.
3. Poll students that leave SFUSD for some other district and/or private school.
4. Poll mothers clubs, such as Burlingame Mothers or Golden Gate Mothers Club to get their perspectives on public vs. private, staying vs. leaving the city.
Any other ideas? Please leave comments with additional ideas, informal poll results, or contact the blog authors if you'd like to run such a poll.
