Pinellas parents react to news of school closings



Parents followed the Pinellas school board's decision to close 5 elementary schools and 2 middle schools through The Gradebook's live updates last night. Readers responded with nearly 100 comments during the meeting, and the discussion continues today on the Times' full story about the school board's vote.

Many readers criticize the school board, while others praise board members for making a tough call.

Which reader comment do you agree with?
They need to cut back on the HUGE administative staff and save some serious money.
Quit your whining, people.
Glad to see the school board make the tough decisions.
This is proof of our school system's lack of concern for the children. Children First?
We can only blame ourselves for what is happening. We wanted tax relief, we got it.
