Should They Close Birchwood School In Niskayuna? [POLL]
They are thinking of possibly closing a great little institution of "lower" learning (lower grade level, that is) - Birchwood Elementary. Do the local Nisky-ites agree? Read the story or zip down to the bottom of the article and take the 2 second poll!
What's going on in my town? I love Nisky! Love the location, the people, and more importantly - the fantastic school system. Actually, there's one little schoolhouse in particular that we thought was fantastic - BIRCHWOOD! My son attended there and it was such a great, personalized experience.
In fact, I went back there recently and wrote a song with the kids.
But times are tough all over, and they are considering closing the school due to a 2 million dollar plus shortfall in the budget, according to an article in the Times Union.
Some want it, some angrily oppose it. I wonder how you feel? Maybe you can't make town meetings, but want your voice heard somehow. Take my simple poll here. I'll send them the results!
