Westinghouse High School -- back to square 1

This video comes from the archives. It was created in August 2009.

Mr. Lopez, once with Pittsburgh Public Schools, had a vision for Westinghouse High School. The reform efforts zoomed ahead with single gender schools, with grades 6 to 12, all under the same roof. Plus, Westinghouse would also absorb some of the students from Peabody High, about to close.

Well, now, in 2012, Mr. Lopez works with the Homewood Childrens Village and not PPS. And, the new Superintendent, Dr. Linda Lane, is sorry that the year at Westinghouse, especially the fall, was so rocky. That's my description, rocky.

Let's remember where and what was said -- as a blast from the past.
