Should the Lawrence School Board close one junior high or several elementary schools?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on February 7, 2010
“Several elementary schools. … I feel if you close the middle school, you will have too many children in one building.”
“Given that choice, close the junior high school because I think that they should keep smaller class sizes at the elementary level.”
“One junior high school because we need the elementary schools for the neighborhood kids; they need to go close to home.”
“I believe they should close a junior high, as opposed to elementary. It’s probably more important to have smaller class sizes for the younger kids.”
