Williams on the legacy of Armstrong High School

April 8, 2016 8:26 am by

Michael Paul Williams makes the case for keeping Armstrong High School open:

“Armstrong has a very serious and difficult mission; people are working very hard at it. You could not take that mission to those 900 students and graft it on top of three other inner-city high schools and achieve anything but an increased amount of chaos and a lessening ability to serve the children.” [Rev. Benjamin Campbell]

It’s hard to believe such a scenario would play out at a historic school in a relatively affluent, empowered community. Or as Melody Davis, president of the Armstrong Class of 2006, asks: “Why send the children of the East End district way across town for schooling?”
