It's good to hear schools can excel. If u can log on " New lorain high school" it details how they went about transforming their public schools. I used to live in lorain prior to moving to taylor mi in october 1977 which had a terrible public high school ,taylor center. I am being critically constructive here,believe it or not.on new "lorain high school" it details how they started funding their up to date public schools. This city is unglamorous, but they care for students. The demographics shows average person makes much less than taylor yet when their new cutting edge high is complete in 2016 ,lorain will have schools lwss thn 15 years old.how can a poorer city accomplish this. Look at their strategy of how they accrued money. Much is free money from interest over taxes over a decade. When some city and others r not achieving ,they should look at where they have excellent idears .here is a strategy that has worked. I am using taylor center as a constructive example. Taylor doesn't want to admit failure,but look at lorain ohio compared to them! Poorer demographics in. Lackluster town that has ultra modern schools. Taylor and others who have had better resources over years should hold their heads in shame! Honestly. If state has to get involved,so be it.
