School officials singing different tune on modulars

Feb. 25, 2009

Public Forum:

When the Brown Deer School Board voted unanimously to prematurely close and demolish Algonquin Elementary School, officials sang the praises of the eight modular classrooms that were leased and installed in 2007 at Dean Elementary School.

Now school officials are singing a different tune. Dean Principal Marirose Lucey was quoted recently in North Shore NOW as describing the modulars thusly: "It's kind of like your Up North cottage. There's no central heating system in here."

If the modulars are so bad, then why did the school district spend a whopping $757,728 to install and lease the modulars?
