Lawmaker: Wilmington needs a high school Jon Offredo, The News Journal
A new high school in Wilmington? One state lawmaker is telling capital budget writers to bank on it.
Rep. Earl Jaques, a Glasgow Democrat and chair of the House Education Committee, told Bond Bill lawmakers Monday morning that as long there are studies on the future of education in the state’s largest city, financial planning for a new high school has to begin sooner rather than later.
“It’s time to resurrect Wilmington High School, the Red Devils,” Jaques said. “Those children deserve it, their parents deserve it and we need it to move forward in that area.”
I mean gee ! It would be nice for Wilmington public school students to have a neighborhood school promised under the Neighborhood Schools Act. Now which school district will this new high school be located in?
