Alternatives To School Closures

Here’s another “infographic,” which could be used to some extent by the Moriarty-Edgewood Board Of Education and the district superintendent to help work out a non-closure solution to the dilemma in which the district is said to “find,” itself.  It is understood the district has, “Well-prepared and effective teachers who can support diverse learners.”

We repeat, from yesterday’s article: The proposal by the Moriarty-Edgewood School District administration is to close 40% of the elementary schools in the district.

Debunking The Myths Of School Closures

The intent of the Moriarty-Edgewood School District Board and the superintendent for the district is to close 40% of the elementary schools in the district.  Thus far they have been denied this drastic measure by the New Mexico Public Education Department (PED). They have attempted to further or bolster their case with supplemental submissions which are now being considered by the PED.

We are posting the “infographic,” found below because we believe it contains valid points against school closures.  This infographic and others to follow were developed when massive school closures occurred in several large cities in the United States.  Not everything contained in the infographic series will be applicable to this district, but each infographic provides food for rational thinking.
