We don't have the money for this school for one year, but let's wait a year, and miraculously, it will be back? Again - move district offices to North High, don't build the $30M boondoggle a few blocks away, and let's get on with it!

I think the plan to close the school and start fresh is reasonable and fair. It says "we know we've let you down & we are not giving up on you!". The kids on the northside need to hear that message.

a supporter is refusing to send their kid to the school? some supporter. Shut the school down and never rebuild it. Education is not a priority in that neighborhood and hasn't been for quite some time.

Why not start a charter school and get all the best Minneapolis kids who play soccer together and form a super team?

Agreed, but not a new building. The last thing the district needs to do is take on another capital project with declining funding.

but you know what? We need to stop doing things based on kids feelings...what they need is a good ole fashioned dose of "reality". We'll all be better off in the end.

How much money would it cost to renovate North High for offices? Our public servants deserve to at least have offices with central air conditioning and good heating. I've always wondered about the current district HQ. It has window A/C units all over and must cost a mint to air condition.

Your posting to a bunch of acedemia here...you need to go plan the "super team" out under the bleachers.
