School & Community Revival in Aldine: Investigating Place-based Design and Development in a Periphery Neighborhood of Houston
White, Laurin Sanders
Brandes, Uwe S.
Many of Houston's underperforming school districts are located in areas of significant suburban sprawl. The question arises as to whether the underperformance of some suburban schools correlates with the composition of the communities in which they are found. The following research explores this possibility through extensive study of the Aldine Independent School District. Not only will it demonstrate such a correlation exists, but will then argue that careful, intentional planning processes have the potential to address these circumstances; processes that stand to benefit both students and their communities. Furthermore, these principles have the potential to further best practices for future suburban development.
