Regarding the article on the open concept at Methuen High School: The fact that students, teachers and officials are tired of coping with the outdated school without walls made me laugh.
When the school was built many years ago, the parents made it loud and clear they thought this idea was outrageous. Yet, those in power thought this idea was the greatest thing. They had difficulty with the teachers trying to teach and the students trying to learn while other classes were right next to them.
They also had difficutly with the air quality. Now they want to build another school. I say, let’s correct the old school and add on to it.
