re: LEAP results: EBR continues to decline - Loubacca
[quote]I understand that and more of a reason to have an ISD in south EBR.[/quote] I would venture to say it can be fixed right now by going to neighborhood schools without having to have a separate ISD. You would think they would just say frick it and give it a shot. What do they have to lose?...
