WEAR TV 3 also did a story on the possible closing of Lincoln Park. Escambia School Superintendent Thomas told WEAR, “My motivation is not to close Lincoln park Elementary. I need Lincoln Park Elementary to be a vital part of their community.”
However, he said he’ll have no choice but to close it, if enrollment numbers don’t go up. In other words, it is the parents’ fault for taking advantage of School Choice and enrolling their children elsewhere.
We can argue that faulty logic another day. See video.
