This seems to embody so much of what is wrong with public education.
Attorney David Van Os, who is representing Save West Campus, the group formed to protest the closure, argued that district officials failed to specify on the Oct. 23 meeting agenda that trustees could take formal action to close the school.
Let’s see, the school is Academically Unacceptable and has low enrollment. How do you figure that, aren’t smaller schools supposed to generate better academic results? The school board voted do to do the fiscally responsible thing and shut the school down. Now the parents have gone to court to prevent it from happening.
How many of these parents voted in the last school board election? How many went storming to the school board when the high school was rated “academically unacceptable?” Are these the parents that advocates for privatizing the school system are talking about? Acting in their self interest would result in a better education for their children?
