From the change.or website, Schenley petition:
Pennsylvania Auditor General Jack Wagner included observations about Schenley in the cover page of his audit released on Monday. The full report can be found at http://www.auditorgen.state.pa.us/Reports/School/schSDoftheCityofPittsburgh010213.pdf , including the following:
"...recently there has been debate regarding whether the decision to close the school was a wise one, and whether the asbestos contamination is as significant as once projected to be.... The divided Board is a clear indication that some members believe that Schenley is still a valuable asset to the school district. Community members have made a strong case for the school to be re-opened, and for the original decision to be reconsidered."
