Mold discovered in Pulaski Elementary Adam Duvernay , The News Journal
There is concern mold discovered in one Christina School District building is just the most obvious manifestation of the problem.
School district officials identified mold in three classrooms in Pulaski Elementary, 1300 Cedar St. in Wilmington, prompting air quality tests which began Wednesday and will conclude Friday. Though unidentified elsewhere, school board members and teachers believe many of the district’s old buildings have the same problem.
This was one of my concerns with the WEIC plan !! Red Clay taxpayers would inherit failing school buildings! To address all the problems associated with out-dated Christina school building, we’ll be looking at $200,000,000.00 (200 million dollars) in capital funding! I urge Red Clay school board to disengage from the WEIC plans or revisiting of those plans. Its time to pull all the cards off the table.
As far as the immediate “health concerns” , Christina parents and community leaders should “demand” an independent top to bottom inspection / assessment of every Christina school building.
Blame Christina’s board all you want! However, the current capital funding method of all traditional public schools is BROKEN! The time has come to fund all traditional public school the same way as votech schools ! BY LEGISLATIVE ACTION! And for you charter schools folks! Sure give the same consideration! However, the State of Delaware must go on your deeds as co-owners !
Sorry to say Christina, lawsuits from parents and perhaps teachers will come out of the woodwork!
