Longtime Newton Upper Falls residents Maxine and Mark Bridger wrote a column in today’s Newton TAB reopening the discussion that the city build a new elementary school in Upper Falls. In contrast, they call Zervas a “dubious candidate for expansion” and suggest “thinking outside the problematic Zervas box.”
They go on to say:
“Every one of the issues above should be explicitly addressed, with facts and figures, before more good money is thrown at rebuilding a school that has become increasingly problematic over the decades.”
If I remember correctly, Bruce Henderson was a big supporter of building a 16th elementary school on Elliot Street a couple of years ago. Did that idea disappear because of lack of funds? Does anyone remember?
