Seattle Schools: Analysis of Closure Plan

Meg Diaz, a parent who is active in the fight against school closures created an insightful powerpoint presentation analyzing the current capacity management proposal. I have (with permission) converted it to a web page and posted it at the below address. Everyone should look at this. What you are hearing from the district about financial responsibility is not necessarily accurate. BE INFORMED.
