9-4-2013 Math help on Saturdays only at eastside schools.by Ann Sutherland on 09/04/13
The district received a grant to provide 7 saturday schools for kids who need help. This is a great idea. However, all seven schools are on the east side, making access for low-performing children west of I-35 problemmatic.
It is a fiction that low-performing kids are concentrated in eastside kids; we have low-performing kids in every school. With seven schools, equity demands that they be apportioned proportionatte to the need.
At least one school needs to be on this side of I-35 and probably one needs to be in Northside also.
