Name: Rev. Diallias Jones
City: New Orleans, Louisiana
2300 Dumaine the Phillis Wheatley Elementary School
Comments: Please demolish this eyesore. Wheatley is beyond saving and the costs to rehabilitate this antiquated structure make no sense at all. Its time our community moves on for the benefit of our children and not for the benefit of our egos. We need to educate our young men and women with the same tools that those at Harvard, Howard, and Yale were afforded. Recreating the same bad rat trap for our kids is what is wrong with my community. We need to move forward with progress not backwards with time. President Obama represents forward thinking and we need forward thinking in the form of a brand new building for our young men and women.
