If government-assisted apartment complexes provide substandard living conditions for children, and this affects their learning, the school board would do well to oppose any and all renewals or applications for these apartments. I imagine if one were to analyze the crime stats for the government-subsidized apartments on Crestdale, one could find anecdotal and statistical evidence to argue that such complexes provide substandard living conditions for children. Quantifying and illustrating the negative effects on the students is the key. The "transforming neighborhoods" and "government-assisted housing is not full [so we don't need any more]" arguments seems better suited for urban planning - although I agree with you 100%. It seems to me that if the focus is on the deleterious effects of subsidized apartments on students, the notion might pick up more steam.
