6th District School Board candidate Jason Thompson proposes breaking up MLK Middle School and adding a new school in Whitcomb Court.

His proposal is to build two new schools, a general middle school on the site where the vacant Whitcomb Court School currently sits, and a satellite high school on Dove Street.
