If the Perpich Center takes over the east metro's Crosswinds School, it will require an infusion of cash from the Legislature.

Good luck. If there is not some kind of ball or puck involved. You don't keep score and no one suffers permanent bodily injuries, funding has pretty much dried up in this state.

The whole cost effectiveness of this type of school AND the Perpich Center need to be seriously examined.

Here's the problem. We don't have enough money to pay for critical programs, but we continue to fund "arts" high schools. Cut this fantasy land and put the money back into the real schools. If parents want the "arts" experience for their kids, let them pay for it.

As Perpich Center alumni we feel there is a huge place in the educational world for them. My daughter LOVED her experience at Perpich. Though letting her live at school at such a young age, the dorm staff proved to be excellent stand-in guardians. The independent experience demanded maturity which proved to strengthen her already developing self-sufficient spirit. She went on to graduate U of M,in just 4 years. Keep up the good work Perpich folks! It isn't easy, but the kids are worth every fight. They're counting on us. Go Team!

Close Crosswinds!!! Give the land back to the Jake Jordan family to become a natural park again. We Woodbury Heights owners shook our heads in disgust when the land was taken via eminent domain.....bring back the horses!!! That eyesore of a building needs to come down.
