I knew it would be a 5-4 vote -- but there were switches

I just watched the Pgh Public Schools board meeting from this week. The Schenley High School topic was part of the agenda.


I had hoped to see Heather Arnet vote to KEEP Schenley High School. She didn't. She sided with Mark Roosevelt and the administration.

On the other side, I figured that Tom Sumpter would vote to allow for the closing of Schenley. He didn't. He was with the other black members on the board -- all voting to keep Schenley.

This could have been 5-4 the other way -- since Tom Sumpter voted to retain the school.
