Dealing with Alamo Elementary school building.

A couple of Years ago the EPISD decided to close Alamo elementary and build a new school. As the old building was in terrible shape and rebuilding the inside would have cost too much money, the school district decided the building needed to come down. Then some idiot decided the building was an historical building and when running not only to the city council but to the historical land mark commission and was able to stop the destruction of the building. IT would cost way to much money to up grade and the money set aside for the new school just sits there waiting to be spent.
Either the Historical Land mark commission needs to rescind their decision and let the EPISD tear the building down or the City council needs to get the historical society to buy from the school district. We need to move forward and get the kids there a brand new school.
When I was student teaching there in 1971 the kids were great but the area for play was all asphalt and even then they had problems with the exterior. Why is it that there are stupid people more interested int he buildings than the children?

I had no idea you went to school there! That's beautiful.
Recently, however, the place has become a haven for ne'er do wells, pimps and all sorts of other unsavory characters. It breaks my damn heart to think of it becoming dilapidated.

You're damn straight - the author of this thread is a well known homosexual who talks about of his butt.
