Sorry South DeKalb, but six of our schools have 200 plus open seats . Time to make some tough decisions that may upset some folks. I bolded the schools with 200 or more open seats. I also added the schools capacity on the end(cap) so you can get an idea of the gap between actual enrollment, and capacity. To see all the numbers for all the schools on the original list follow the link below

    As a working professional, there are several things that I have a problem with :
    #1 Half empty schools are schools with low enrollment, disciplinary problems, parental involvement and admintrators’issues.#2 Renovating Schools will meet the needs of all students and educators to have better& MORE resources(isn’t it better to have more students in a school to have MORE FUNDS ?).
    #3 ALL SCHOOLS WITH 200 -300+ ARE SCHOOLS WITH INTANGIBLE FACTORS AND FAVORITISM ISSUES ( DUH……………)CLOSE THESE SCHOOLS ……TO GAIN SUCCESS!
