To the Editor:
I was very happy to see that Ald. Will Burns (4th) has publicly stated that he supports Dyett remaining open as an open enrollment, high quality, neighborhood public high school. However we need an alderman who will not only use his words but his actions to actively work to make sure that all of our children receive a quality education now.
Burns, although late to the game, could remedy that by holding public hearings. Not only would that give an opportunity for Dyett supporters to present a plan that has been researched and developed with community input over a two year period but could satisfy his concern expressed in his recent e-mail that there “should be more community involvement.”
Finally we need Ald. Burns to get the school board to re-open Dyett for the fall of 2015.
