"On July 22, the Chester Upland School District announced that Main Street School, which was slated for closure, will remain open. This capped a frenzied effort by administrators, staff and volunteers to increase school district enrollment by 500. This is quite an accomplishment and everyone involved deserves to be congratulated."
Hold on there Bobalouie!
I’d love to believe that the administrators actually enrolled 500 students just on face value, but it’s difficult for me to believe anything that comes out of 1720 Melrose Ave these days.
Sure, they hit the streets, knocked on doors, robo-called households and cell phones. But did they really enroll 500 kids?
Who are these kids? What grades are they in? Are they toddlers just starting school or maybe drop outs coming back to school to get a diploma?
Did the administrators really accomplish the real goal of taking students out of the charter schools and placing them behind desks in our public schools?
I doubt if they’ll ever share the real data on their recruiting efforts, but if the charters lost 500 students, I’m sure we would have heard an outcry from them by now.
