Rational decisions and heartbreak on school closings
from The New York Times
When it comes to school closings, the arguments may make sense on paper, but the reality is much messier. At University City High in Philadelphia, staff members and students were trying to absorb the decision by a state commission to close the school along with 22 others in the city. At an often-heated and sometimes tearful hearing, 19 protesters, including Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers, were arrested. School district officials said they needed to shut down schools to close a gaping budget hole.
