I keep reading these articles that Glenn Wohltmann writes where he is quoting this unnamed Carden West parent who seems to have a lot of information about the situation there. The facts in the story seem to disagree with information publicly available in the bankruptcy filing paperwork, and a simple call to Stratford might confirm or refute whether this is a merger.

How about some objective reporting instead of just publishing inaccurate rhetoric from unnamed sources?

It would be nice see reporting on why parents are leaving, the condition of the school now, how the layoff of teachers and staff was handled, whether the facility is staffed to an appropriate level, etc.
