The learning curve

September 5, 2008

Dang. I remember about a dozen years ago writing that the $40 million renovation of South Side High School was an outrageous excess:

 LOS ANGELES (AP) – A decade behind schedule, a $350 million downtown high school finally opened on Wednesday after years of environmental, seismic and legal troubles.

“We’ve been waiting a long time to get this,” said Uriel Rivera, an 18-year-old senior at the Edward R. Roybal Learning Center. “A lot of people in the community were supposed to graduate from here, but they didn’t. I thought it was going to be the same for me.

Boy, just throw in another $150 million, and that would be enough to bring Fort Wayne Community Schools buidings up to barely adequate. Build it and they will come! But not, necessarily, learn.
