Which city is better to raise a family in, Dallas or Atlanta?

I'm from Wisconsin and I was all set to move to Atlanta next year with my family, but alot of people are telling me that Dallas is a little better. I do want to move to the south but I want the move to be right for my family and I. I have an Associates degree in Business Management and am going for my Bachelor's but I can't find a job that pays me over $9.00 an hour. People tell me that the south have so many great chances for me and I want that for me and my family. It's just some people say Dallas is good and some say Atlanta is good. Can anyone give me any suggestions?

Both cities do have some issues as far as crime and the environment. I lived in Atlanta for 7 years and have had friends that lived in Dallas. There are some nice places out side of Atlanta that are great for families if you dont mind the commute to get into Atlanta's major business areas. You may also want to look... More
