It is really sad to read about what became of the last class's high school experience. It's hard to imagine any of the board members voting this result for their own children.

There is also this comment from the board president:

- The building is designed for use as a school. If potential buyers found it expensive to reconfigure the building for another use, that tells us nothing about the level of remediation costs for use as a high school. Illogical statements have increased as those making decisions for PPS realize that no one will call them on the statements.

Never had an affiliation with Schenley beyond attending the last five musicals with some other old folks who like cheap, but quality entertainment. Still,can't seem to get past the first two paragraphs of the Sostek article in the PG. Maybe tomorrow. Good luck to Schenley grads past and present.
