Warren West Siders disagree with school board



Published: Mon, July 2, 2007 @ 11:37 p.m.

WARREN — Grandparents, parents, schoolchildren and other community members — about 25 in all — think west side residents are getting the short end of the stick on new school construction sites.

They gathered outside the Warren schools administration building today to protest and let school officials know they are upset that schools are currently being built only on the east side of Warren.

The Rev. Ronald Fowlis, president of the Warren-Trumbull chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, said people are protesting for the simple reason that the Warren Board of Education has not kept their promise to build on the west side of town.

“It is not a racial thing,” he said. “They did not include the entire city in the construction.”

Ed Bolino, president of the Warren Board of Education, said he did not know about the protesters shouting, “Keep it fair, give us our share,” but he said he wants to hear what the community thinks is best.
