As I posted in comments last night, an unconfirmed letter sent to LaSalle parents and teachers indicates that Team Brizard have reconsidered the wisdom of de-magnetizing the school as a way to relieve Lincoln Elementary overcrowding.
"While one possible solution included changing LaSalle’s status as a magnet school, that option will not be pursued and LaSalle’s status as a magnet school remains in place."
Was the LaSalle idea really just an option? Did the folks at 125 S. Clark Street really think that there wouldn't be enormous pushback both public and behind the scenes? Is this a good sign for other folks making their cases -- Casals, Crane -- or a bad one?
