Okay, so more likely than not the proposal that could exclude homes straddling the Brookline town line from sending their children to Brookline schools is really more about keeping Boston residents out of Brookline schools than Newton.

Under current rules, anyone living on the town line in a home built before June 2005 can send their children to the town’s public schools.

But the concept –which reportedly sparked a pretty emotional debate last night — has me wondering: Does Newton have a similar policy? Can kids in homes abutting or sharing lots with us from, say, Boston, Waltham and, yes, Brookline, send their kids here?
