ODESSA, Florida — When Walker Middle School opened in 1997, parents pulled their kids from private schools to go there. With journalism and drama classes, environmentally sensitive programs and like-minded families, this public school would do just fine.
Dotted with picturesque lakes, the area attracted professional people to multimillion-dollar estates, the kind of places with a gate and a driveway the length of a football field. Even Walker’s less-wealthy parents are police officers, nurses, schoolteachers.
