School Closings: Focus On Reynolds Elementary

The recent discussions revolving around teacher’s salaries have shifted the focus away from the plight of public education in general. School district funding across the state has disappeared as schools are shuttered.

In order to bring attention to a key factor in the loss of district funding, the Arizona Daily Independent will highlight closed schools over the next several months. As you will see, school closings not only impact students, parents, and teachers.

Today, we focus on Reynolds Elementary in the Tucson Unified School District.

    Hey look at that! A 5-0 vote. Now it makes sense. An eastside school which Adelita always votes to close and Hicks wasn’t on the board yet. Got it.

    And now the District is trying to sell off Corbett elementary for well below market value to Pepper Viner developers for $750k. Can you say crony capitalism? Mismanagement at the expense of kids teachers and taxpayers.
