North Charleston High Hopes for Park Circle Parents' Group

Last week's meeting between North Charleston High School Principal Robert Grimm and neighborhood parents from Park Circle directly resulted from the P & C's articles on NCHS. Citizens should thank Deanna Pan for writing about problems that CCSD swept under the rug during the McGinley administration. Perhaps their enthusiasm will propel a critical mass of middle-class students into attending the neighborhood high school.

However, as the lead editorial on Friday makes clear, "In such a competitive atmosphere, neighborhood schools will have to reconsider what they have to offer, and make adjustments--with the support of the district and the school board."

Actually, the district and school board must make some decisions that favor its feeder schools as well. Let's hope someone with power and influence has figured out that more of the same won't work.
