Will you support a moratorium on school closings until a detailed analysis of the impacts of shuffling children is completed, and a real plan to address the quality of education and safety for every child is in place?

No I fully support a detailed analysis and real plan to address the quality of education and safety for children. I also fully support some very stringent and comprehensive criteria that would have to be met, including public notice and feedback, before a school is closed. However, I am not willing to support a blanket moratorium on school closings. There must be a mechanism to address clearly underutilized, underperforming schools that have no reasonably redeeming benefits.
