Vasectomy Zoning

No wonder public schools like it:
But the popularity of "kids-free" communities also adds an interesting wrinkle to the debate over Illinois' school-aid formula.

Recent protests at two North Shore schools spotlighted the high property tax price that residents of some suburbs pay per student.

The housing shift is not confined to the Chicago area. A few years ago, officials in suburban Boston approved so many age-restricted developments that a state legislator decried the practice as "vasectomy zoning."
(Sorry, couldn't resist linking to this, but it's an interesting use of a medical term...)
