More Than 70% Flip Their Opinion?
The Tattler conducted a two week reader's poll, finished today, on the imminent closure of Emeryville's Anna Yates School. The question put to the readers was "Should Anna Yates Elementary School be closed?" The final vote was:
- No 46 (76%)
- YES 12 (20%)
- NO OPINION 2 (3%)
Several parents of Anna Yates students have publicly noted a great deal of ignorance about the closure of the elementary school among their fellow parents despite Measure J and a decade of work on the Center of Community Life, of which the new school is a part. Some have indicated the ignorance of the school closure on the part of some parents is due to a (possibly purposefully) inadequate community engagement and disclosure on the part of the School District.
Some citizens are calling on the School District to reconfigure the Center of Community Life to allow Anna Yates to be saved.
