City Voices January 2009: Education in Austin

Print More

Activists say that the closure of Austin High School in 2004 is still having a ripple effect in the community, and the neighborhood needs a new, comprehensive high school. Austin has the largest gap in the city between the number of seats available in high-performing schools and the number of students who need them. What’s happening at the schools affected by the closure and at the new schools that have opened since then? Guests: Jackie Reed, Virgil Crawford of the West Side Health Authority.
