South Vo Tech High School was a Second Chance School for many

South Vo Tech High School is gone. It was closed in a boneheaded move of the Pgh Public School District Administration and School Board.

John Edwards, D, candidate for President, speaks of "second chance schools" as part of the solution to combat the 'drop outs factories' and high drop out rates.

Many of the students who attended South Vo Tech were there because they didn't fit in a prior school. Some went straight into South after 8th grade. Many were transfer students.

Pittsburgh needs to re-open South Vo Tech! We need that type of school among the choices for kids and families.
