I used to go home for lunch often, another benefit of going to a neighbourhood school. The idea of centralization is thoughtless and takes anyone but the students in mind. It's an economic shell-game.

In our neighbourhood, Queensdale's slated to close next June. We moved into the neighbourhood precisely because of a good, nearby school. Hill Park Secondary was our local secondary school and they, at least, had the ArtSmart programme. As a music teacher, that was a rather wonderful boon.

I am so tired of the economic rationale being the only answer given. It reminds of me of those lines from an old song, Laughter, by Bruce Cockburn: A laugh for the news-print night-mares / World that never was / Where the questions are all, Why? / And the answers are all, Because. Hear it at
