Dallas school kids deserve better than this

At Nathan Adams Elementary, near the Dallas North Tollway and LBJ, learning is crammed into every possible inch of space. Here, instruction takes place in a cubby created by using filing cabinets to divide a small room into two even smaller spaces. (Dallas ISD)

Sometimes photos can make points that even our most persuasive writing cannot.

Over the past week, we’ve written two editorials about the urgent need for DISD trustees to approve a short term facilities. We focused first on the “fix and expand” portion of the proposal. Today we wrote about the pre K and “best fit” schools portion.

This slideshow provides additional texture to our words and let’s you see firsthand what’s at stake.

Two big takeaways for me as a result of the time I spentresearching the “bridge plan,” designed to bridge the gap between the most severe, immediate needs and the time when a comprehensive plan can be approved:

One: The shift in population growth in the Dallas ISD is startling and worthy of everyone attention. No cheap jerseys longer is it the city core where the greatest needs for additional classroom seats exist. The growth is surging at the district outer edges; that reflected in where expanded space and more pre K seats are needed. Both of the editorials referenced above include maps that illustrate this point.

Two: I was struck repeatedly by the number of teachers and administrators on each campus who are creatively addressing the facilities challenges that face them. Whether wholesale jerseys it’s finding a way to decorate an electrical closet that takes up a chunk of a pre K classroom at Titche Elementary or finding ways to most effectively display students’ work in a custodian’s office turned TAG classroom at Nathan Adams, campus staffs deserve a round of applause. They have put together bold and interesting learning environments even under some of the worst conditions.

As a DISD taxpayer, I was proud to have teachers and students making such splendid lemonade out of some giantfacilities lemons.

In closing, as we stressed in our editorials, this bridge plan doesn even begin to cover the most critical facilities needs. And I expect several trustees to raise legitimate points about why this or that campus isn getting into the first round of help. Those are all reasonable questions. The approach the district took seems like a valid way to try to take politics off the table and implement a formula that treats all schools equally. That said, it too bad that any school is left off the list. And just one more reason we need to get this interim wholesale nfl jerseys plan approved and get on to the work for a comprehensive wholesale nhl jerseys china plan to get in front of voters.
