No, you got it wrong.

Shutting down these schools is not the answer. Keeping them as "neighborhood" schools is the way to go. Why? Because if the only kids that went to these schools were the same kids that cause 90% of all the trouble in them anyway maybe a little more attention would get paid by thier parents, teachers, staff and board members. Bussing has been the downfall of Government education over the last 40 odd years. Keep it local and I bet you see a different story. I grew up 4 blocks from Alderman Elementary and was bussed to Snipes. You think I cared what went on on Chestnut St. when I was not around?
