David Hunn of the St. Louis Post- Dispatch is the latest to cover the St. Louis Public School districts’ outrageous policy of deed restricting the sale of closed buildings to others seeking to open a school. The opening of the story shows just how crazy the deed restrictions are, lumping charter schools in with strip clubs, liquor stores, landfills and sex toy shops.
The avalance of anger at the Special Administrative Board for instituting this policy is continuing to grow and spread. The Children’s Education Alliance has produced a video highlighting the restrictions and the sentiment in the community. While SAB CEO Rick Sullivan has said the policy may be revisited, the Board still needs to hear from the community! Let’s keep up the pressure on the SAB and demand that these schools be available to be purchased by charter schools!
