The Superintendent of Schools ordered that at least 1/2 of the Ford School garden be destroyed beginning Monday July 27 at 7AM. The reason is to create more space for the kids to play.
For years, with 600 kids at the school, that space was not used or needed. With fewer kids there now, why would they remove part of a garden that teaches health, science, nutrition for play space? If space were needed, there is a park close by.
Many programs from the Ford School have been eliminated, crippling what was Lynn’s only community school, just as the Federal government renewed its funding for community schools. See below.

This action, requested by Superintendent Latham and agreed to by the Lynn School Committee, with Maria Carrasco and Donna Coppola dissenting, is a major blow to the Ford School students and the Highlands.
