School rebuilding scam
Submitted by mabeldog on Sat, 05/26/2012 - 15:10.
Willson (elementary) School on Ansel Road was built in a totally empty ghetto neighborhood. The school district said it was built "where more students needed it", than in its previous location on East 55th. The district bought 60 parcels of land and when the school was completed it could accomodate 587 students. Since there were few students in this area and another BRAND NEW school had been built ONE MILE away, the school district moved quickly to drag all the hearing impaired students from AG Bell, which was swiftly closed, near Shaker Square, a pleasant neighborhood with a great walkability score to a bombed out ghetto in order to justify this amazing waste of money. The school has an enrollment of 385, with a large percentage of hearing impaired students bussed from across the city. On the most recent Ohio Education Scorecard Willson Elementary failed to meet a SINGLE requirement scoring a big fat ZERO and is now in Academic Emergency.
