My kids go to that school, idiot. The former headmaster left there more than 10 years ago. Get your facts straight.
Their facts were straight. They said "former" headmaster. The point they were making is some people are trying to scare others that Conte School is not a safe location from pedifiles when there are perverts in the wealthiest schools. That headmaster didn't get caught while he was at that school, but you are a fool if you think he wasn't into then. Did you see the birdseye view of the CT school shooting. It was a beautiful rural area surrounded by forests and fields. The safety of the children has little to do with where the school is located in North Adams. Being close to the police and fire department is a plus for me.

You just realized that Sullivan is going to close??? Wow! Clearly, you haven't been paying any attention and clearly have never attended any meetings on this or read any news articles on it. Now you have an opinion?? Elementary schools in downtown areas are everywhere in America, including locally in Adams. Only major incident in North Adams schools was years ago when some crazy came with an axe - and that was at Sullivan School!

I hate to admitt it, but "John" or whomever he is, has a point. I did not realize that Sullivan was going to close. That is a shame. I wish that there was a way to save it. Sullivan is in an ideal location. Conte is in a location where any pervert can watch the children. The other schools are set in areas that a stranger would be noticed. I realize that our officials are trying to do the best they can for the children with what they have... but I still wish that there was another way. Years back, when my oldest went to Sullivan and I learned he would be sent to Conte for 5th grade... I panicked. They said that we lived to close to be bussed and my 5th grader would be a walker! Clarksburg did not have school choice at the time... so we moved there. It meant that much to me. I did not want my child going to Conte. Ps...Lewis Lent was living in NA at the time. NA should find a way to do k-8 like other area schools. Our children's safety comes first. That's my opinion and no one is going to change it.

The articles that I read mentioned how Conte would be fixed and how much it would cost. I never saw an article about Sullivan closing. Of course I do not go to meetings. They are an embarrassing circus. I guess that you have all the time to read all the articles and go to all the meetings. I do not, I have children to care for.

A renovated Sullivan is estimated to cost $5 million more from the architects and engineers and another $1 million to temporary move students. A new two story Sullivan on Kemp Park would cost the same as Conte and leave little space for play and parking along with eliminating a popular baseball field. Neighbors across from the field would have a thirty foot school wall in their face. That's not acceptable and would depreciate all those homes.

There is no evidence at all that the former headmaster assaulted any students. And the north Adams schools are awful. Most of the students are on welfare and their parents are idiots. That's much more of a problem than where the school is located. Put lipstick on a pig, it's still a pig.

No one is asserting that Harris diddled any kids, but he was accused of uploading some extremely vile prepubescent child porn and was arrested with such porn on thumb drives actually in the pockets of his bathrobe. I believe he just got out of prison.

As for the North Adams schools, they are not good in the sense of private college prep, but folks who send their kids to a school that costs $15k year should really keep their yaps shut about poor kids and families hurting the local public school district. Rather than being a snob, it would behoove you to find solutions to real problems, like - how do you best educate a population of truly disadvantaged kids that the law requires you to try your best with until the age of 18?

Your idiocy is far greater than those whom you criticize.

If you could afford to send your kids to private school, you would. So, earn more money and shut up.

Ah. I was mistaken. Obviously your kids are the poor scholarship admits that the real Pine Cobble parents like to keep around so they can keep the word "diverse" on their website. Window dressing for rich liberals. Or maybe you have rich in-laws. Either way, same thing.

Your defensiveness is telling.

You can go back to criticizing poor people now. That clearly makes you feel better about your own situation.

. If you could afford to live in Williamstown, you would. It has a better public school system. If you could afford the $25k to send two kids to pine cobble, you would. You're the one being defensive as you obviously are distraught over how pool your income is.

That is the problem with this country. If you can't make the effort to be an informed voter, you shouldn't vote at all. How do you think we end up with such stupid election results?
