|Lafon Elementary at 2601 Seventh Street
||This building needs to be torn down and new structure needs to be built on this site. The building is beyond rehabilitation and renovation of this obsolete, ineffecient money pit does a disservice to our children. The only people who stand to gain from this are the politically connected contractors not the students who would attend Lafon. A new school that is energy efficient, wired for today's technology & electricity uses, and a school that gives children hope is what is needed. We do not need to demonstrate to our youth that there is one set of schools for the wealthy and another for the poverty stricken. All of our children deserve better than this.
A Lafon alumnus and neighbor who lives on the 2600 block of Lafon.
