Great news. My neighborhood is one of those places where folks mobilize when it really matters.? This is the third time that Tremont School has been on a closing list from the Cleveland School Board, and the third time that Tremonters mobilized to get it off the list successfully.
I argued that the school should be saved for all the obvious education reasons, but also because its closure would create a massive public nuisance smack in the middle of one of the few thriving neighborhoods in the city.? Whether or not this argument had any effect, who knows.? But this argument had resonance, and proved that it wasn’t just parents with school age kids fighting the closure – it was all of Tremont.
