What can parents and communities do to create socioeconomically integrated schools?

New San Francisco schools since 2009: We’re up to 14

The ideal would be that the public schools did such a great job of convincing parents to send their kids that there would be no private schools in San Francisco. While I realize that’s unlikely for a host of reasons, 13 new privates (and 1 possible charter) since 2009 is worrisome. Why is there such a market for them? What could SFUSD do to retake some of that market share?
