So basically…

So basically…

A consulting firm last night recommended closing 15 city school buildings, a proposal sure to stoke controversy in a district still debating the merits of a 2006 restructuring.—source

The initial reading of this story does seem centered on poor areas, further reducing or shifting the city’s educational landscape. I don’t like the way this looks.

That parallels the firm’s projection that district enrollment will fall by 15.9 percent, or by more than 4,500 students, from fall 2008 to fall 2018. Current K-12 enrollment is 26,123.—source

So the recommendation upon which the city may build its educational strategy (elemental to bringing in new people) is closing schools?

Anyway, just initial thoughts. Something to keep in mind, refine, or negate with more data.
