What To Do With Powell Elementary?

Curtis Black at Community Media Workshop has an interesting piece about whether Powell Elementary should be expanded where it is or whether a new school should be built across the street -- in Rainbow Park:

"Powell Elementary

School, 7530 S. South Shore Drive, was among the schools listed to

receive a new building when Mayor Daley unveiled his Modern Schools

program in 2006.

"What neighbors learned in November was that the city and CPS were

planning to put the new building across the street, on a huge swath of

land that comprises the northern entrance to Rainbow Beach Park."

Read the piece (Lakefront School Site Questioned) and tell us what you think should be done -- expand Powell where it is, or build a new school in the park, or something completely different?
