City Paper says: Too Many Damn Schools

Ruth Samuelson of the City Paper City Desk Blog does a tour of some of the District school poised to close and comes to a contrarian conclusion:

Much has also been said about the loss of schools as neighborhood institutions, gathering points, and tradition cultivators and holders. But if you look at the reality, blending schools are often already in the same small vicinity.
You can see what she's talking about here.
