last night the district 117 school board voted to close north elementary aka hallie's school. i'm extremely disappointed with their decision. i feel like this was a very political decision, rather than a rational one.
and that is disappointing. very.
they are keeping open a school that is in disrepair. they are closing a school that is well maintained.
they are keeping open a school that has not had adequate yearly progress for two years in a row. they are closing a school that is known for academic achievement.
how much sense does that make? i mean, really?!
it seems as though the decision is set in stone and when the closure will take place, i don't know. but for now i'll just keep letting hallie make friends with kids that she will get split up with in the upcoming years and fall in love with a school that is closing.
how nice. HAPPY THURSDAY. BLAH.
