District Decision Fuels Public Outcry

Mira Cary and Alex Pickell

A sign could be seen on the pedestrian bridge above I-630 next to the Woodrow exit reading, “Johnny Key: Don’t Close Our Schools,” by an anonymous source on Wednesday, Feb. 22. In recent weeks, there has been public outrage in response to Education Commissioner Johnny Key’s approval of LRSD budget cuts that will close down 3 of the district’s schools in the next school year.

A full story about the school closings can be found in the third issue of the Tiger on page 6.
