But something must be done - whether this is the right plan remains to be seen - nothing else has worked.

And this is the group we want running the school district until a hearing on the lawsuit next year? By the time that happens the state may as well dissolve the Youngstown School district altogether.

Great idea - may as well close the district now

And he walks quietly into the sunset, pension intact, with his wife, who also receives a state pension. Must be nice.

What if the lawsuit succeeds in delaying the Youngstown Plan for any length of time? What happens to the district and the children who need an education? The status quo is unacceptable.

"Upward trend"= too little too late. Add the dysfunctional Board of Education to the mix and it is merely the eye of the storm. Long term educational improvements were not guaranteed.

Why are people working so hard to stop a plan that could only help a struggling school district rather accepting this as a done deal and embracing it where they can? OK Michelle - suppose you and Rep Fedor successfully overturn this. Will the community's commitment to educating their children or lack thereof suddenly take a 360 degree turn? What is your plan to improve community commitment in the meantime? In the months or perhaps years this plan could be delayed, how many more children will we lose to generational poverty and apathy due to lack of an education? One would be too many. Shame on you both.

My family used to go there - it was a terrific value for the money which included lodging and three meals a day. I was sorry to see it close.

Not to worry - between STRS and PERS he will have a very nice pension. I am so disappointed to hear this.

Get over it - running Dr Hathorn out of town was the death knell for the district's status quo. The Board of Edication should resign and clear the way for much needed change.
