More on Schools

Sometimes Hawker thinks everyone knows something and then finds out everyone doesn't.

This is a great example of bureaucracy at work. Even though Robert Poole Middle School no longer exists, the Maryland State Board of Education put the non-existent school on "probationary status" because it is (well, actually "was") found to be "persistently dangerous."

Also from the article:

"Next year, the school building, located on West 36th Street near Falls Road, will be used only by the Academy of College and Career Exploration, with which Robert Poole shared a building for the past two years. The academy is a magnet high school.
All middle school students will attend Hampden Elementary and Middle School in the fall. Hampden Elementary, at 3608 Chestnut Ave., was expanded into a middle school to fulfill a state mandate for the city school system to reduce its operating space."

Is it true that Robert Poole Middle School is gone?
