Congratulations to Franklin County schools districts who got top grades for the 2008 - 2009 school year as many schools are starting the school year this week.

The easy thing for me is to look at the report cards. 
You can look at report cards by school district or building by building within a school district.

Columbus is one of the 161 cities in Zillow's Index, of course.  Spencer Rascoff of Zillow wrote of the ZHVI (Zillow Home Value Index):  Sorry to spoil the party, but we're not at the bottom!

Zillow is different than the numbers that Realtor.com,  the Ohio Association of Realtors, Columbus Board of Realtors or really anyone else put out.  Those are based on home sales.  The Zillow Home Value Index is based on ALL homes.  Well almost all.
