    This school should be supported not closed. Closing schools is not the answer, and destroying large comprehensive high schools to create small schools isn't either. If it was, there would be no issues with with BCAE or Law and Govt., both small schools created by DOE from a large comprehensive HS. The DOE finds it easier to slap on a new coat of paint, nameplates and letterhead (and in doing so removing the statistics from the NYSED report card for a few years) rather than doing something positive like properly funding the school, or giving it manageable numbers of higher needs students. How about making health care and other supports available onsite for children and the community?

    Closing schools is not the answer. None of the parents, students, staff, electeds, and community leaders present at these hearings want their schools to close. They want the resources and support they need to get the job of improving student performance done.
