TO-Centre schools could close

School closing review dates* have been posted by the school board  (tdsb.on.ca )   Mark your calendars, forward widely and sharpen your pencils: there are schools to save in one of the city’s most vulnerable commiunities!

There are nine schools which are up for “review”.  Together they serve the poorest neighbourhoods in downtown Toronto.

And each of the neighbourhoods they serve rely upon the school acting as a community hub for adult learners, pre-schoolers, after school programs and community organizing.
