Would you support the possibility of closing Lawrence Alternative High School in order to keep East Heights School open?
Asked at South Park on April 14, 2003
“I know a limited amount of information about the alternative high school, but I do know it’s important to me that any neighborhood have its own neighborhood school.”
“I think it’d be better to come up with an alternative to closing any public schools.”
“I wouldn’t support either of those choices because room needs to be made in the budget for both high school students that need extra help and children of a younger age for small class sizes and not to be bused.”
“We have a lot of grade schools around here anyway. It wouldn’t hurt to close one to keep others open.”
