Thursday, Feb. 5, 2009 | In all the hubbub about the expiring grant, etc., it’s important to again question the need for a new downtown high school, even one as ridiculously small as the one proposed. Would the high school have sports programs, or even P.E. classes? Where? Stickball in the streets, maybe? The whole idea is absurd.

Emily Alpert‘s article from last July, which you linked and I reread, makes the need for even another elementary school downtown very questionable based on the decisions downtown residents are currently making about their children’s schooling.

There’s no escaping the conclusion that this whole exercise is further demonstration that this city is being run for the benefit of developers and other downtown people of influence.
