Middle College High School is valuable

Having read the article regarding the uncertain future of the Boyce Campus Middle College High School in Monroeville, ["Schools for troubled youth teetering," Nov. 19, Local News] I hope the supporting school districts agree to have it continue.

I realize our school districts face formidable financial challenges. However, the Middle College is a good investment and has been a valuable avenue for students who might not otherwise graduate from high school. It is an asset to the communities it serves and its graduates would be future taxpayers instead of tax liabilities.

Although I am not a fan of charter schools, the superintendents' suggestion to convert it to a charter school and open it to students from other districts might be a viable way to provide another continuing funding source to help ensure its future.
