Dear. Another architectural gem cast aside by the school board.

Some years ago, the board cast off the former Princess Elizabeth School in West Hamilton; here's a Google Maps street view. It's a really pretty little school - prettier than almost any that the board has now - and it's slowly going to hell.

I would not mourn the closing of schools such as Delta and Princess Elizabeth and Dundas District if only our new schools weren't such ugly monuments to short-sighted bean-counting and faddish utilitarianism.

I was about to say "at least we're not so likely to pull such a building down as we once would have been", but wasn't the school board set to demolish the Stinson School?
