I think the district believes this overcrowding will ease up in the next 3-4 years but I can see where parents caught in the thick of it are probably not happy.
Also, this from the West Seattle blog in one of their forums about the current crisis:
It's getting harder and harder to defend our School Board and District administrators.
Apparently the "Save Seattle Schools" crew have been right about the District's lax accounting and oversight, though I must say I don't care for the way they've presented some of their arguments.I wish I could talk to this person. Tell me the better way. Honestly, I think I have tried every way I know how to relay this information or make an argument. When Charlie and I get testy or blunt, please keep in mind this has been years of talking, pleading, explaining.
There is no pleasure in say "hey, we got it right." I just wish someone with power had listened sooner.
