The Final Word: School Closed

The School Board has made their decision to close Luther Burbank Middle School, and along with two other closures, four schools will merge into two, and about seven more will be relocated. It may not be such bad news for Urban Sprouts, because the new school we'll get, Aim High Academy, looks promising. Of course we worry how the closures will affect sutdents. Will they be able to attend the merged or relocated schools, some much farther from home? Will they enroll in new schools and be happy there? All this remains to be seen.
