Will the School Board's re-zoning recommendations include a configuration that will allow Salemtown parents to send their children to a quality school closer than the ten-mile-distant West Meade area? According to the City Paper, the recommendations will be announced at tonight's Board meeting. They are said to be partly motivated by desires to send children to schools closer to their homes. I would rather have the option that some nearby Hope Gardens parents do: instead of packing up their kids and sending them halfway across town to a decent school, they send them a quarterway across town to an excellent school. How does Hope Gardens fall in the Eakin zone, but Salemtown does not? This is not a bad idea either.
