I received an email from a friend asking if Chester High School was the only high school in Chester.
About five years ago, this single mom moved her family from a small row home in Darby-Colwyn to a very nice single in Willow Grove. Apparently, her teenage son must be acting up so she has sent him to live with his father here in Chester who has enrolled him at Chester High.
I told her that there has probably never been a worse time to be in the Chester school district than now with them trying to operate after all the funding cuts. She didn’t know how bad things are here and just thought that sending her son to Chester would help him appreciate how good he has it living in her home and by attending Abington High School.
Well, some kids prefer the streets to lush lawns, but I’m sure it didn’t take long for him to see a stark difference between high schools.
And then I pick up the Chester Spirit today and read that the school board can’t even adjourn a meeting without a 5-4 vote. How ridiculous is that?
Gee Democrats, all you had to do was put another person on the ballot and you would have easily won a 5th seat on the school board. Why all the drama now? You have got to expect that all votes will be 5-4.
