The St Louis Contrarian

Providing Independent and Intelligent Insight on St. Louis Public Policy Issues

Another Example of the Disfunction of the City of St. Louis

The political posturing around school closings is the latest and worst example of bad behavior in St. Louis. The school board desperately needs to close the schools as attendance is down and the buildings are costly to maintain. The response is an action by the Board of Aldermen to ban school closings, even though they have no say in the matter. St. Louis has far more buildings than comparably sized school districts. Instead of blaming the problems on charter schools, SLPS needs to improve the quality of education. 21% of students performing at grade will not cut it. Written by Paul Dribin
