On today’s Powertalk with Lorraine Jacques- White, we discussed the potential closing of 13 Atlanta Public Schools. The plan to close these school was proposed by the APS Superintendent Errol Davis a few weeks ago. The Superintendent states that the school closing will save the district money. Many parents and Community Activist are outraged by the plan to lose the schools, and want this plan to stop.
Our special guest today were parents and the PTA from Coan Middle School. They have been protesting the Superintendents plan to close the schools, and plan to fight until the very end.
