Amidst Talk of "New Reality" at Dallas ISD, An Invite to a New School Groundbreaking

During Dallas ISD Superintendent Michael Hinojosa's budget-gutting presentation to the school board yesterday, when he warned that the state's $27-billion budget shortfall could result in as many as 3,900 layoffs and secondary school classrooms filled with at least 35 students per teacher, the district posted to its Facebook page an invite to the February 22 groundbreaking of a new 184,000-square-foot campus at 3831 N. Prairie Creek, near Military Parkway. Says the district, the school "will accommodate up to 1,250 students in grades 6-8." Incidentally, that's the Ann Richards Middle School.
