Bill's plan, with multiple pages, is on his city web site:
Bill Peduto held a press conference moments ago (Thursday morning) in the conference room in city hall to give solid suggestions about the school situation and Schenley High School.
There were three TV stations, two radio stations and two or more newspaper reporters there -- so I'm sure we'll be hearing about it shortly.
In a nutshell -- he says:
* Sell Reizenstein.
Mark Roosevelt wants to move the students out of Schenley High School, a great building and a great school, and put some of them into Reisenstein. Reisenstein was a failed school when it was a middle school -- never a high school. And Reisenstein is a failed builing as a school. Reisenstein was build in the era when they made schools much like prisons -- but worse. There isn't a single window in Reisenstein. A lot of good educational research proves that schools have better test results if they have natural light and windows. Duhh....
* The money from Reisenstein can be used to fix up Schenley!
Of course the right thing to do is sell the valued properties. Sell Reisensein -- and -- sell the Oakland location for the Board of Education and Administration. Roosevelt wants to sell the wrong buildings.
We'll watch Bill's city council web site for more details, and the media too.
