Education buildings increase the Education Quotient over a coverage radius. Some buildings have variable coverage radii which can be changed using a School Bus Funding slider, however the majority have a fixed radius that cannot be expanded or contracted without modding the game.
Schools are designed to greatly increase the Education Quotient of your Sims, however it only has an effect on a small age group. With the Opera House, the average household age must be 80 Years old to have any benefit at all.

Its' low capacity, unadjustable funding (It is the only 'Education' building that doesn't have a slider) and the fact it doesn't report usage can become a problem in larger cities. When over capacity, the Opera House will give off a massive education penalty and drop local land values. This issue was fixed by Toroca, a link is available in the Infobox.
Maxis made it inherit the Parks Cohort, resulting in it appearing in the Parks and Recreation Finance Panel instead of the Education Finance Panel. Why they did this is unknown, however it may be a result of not including a funding slider.
