Councilor will not give up dream of high school in Mattapan

City Councilor Charles Yancey (Dorchester, Mattapan) today seeks approval from his fellow councilors for a hearing to look at borrowing $115 million to build a new high school on the grounds of the old Mattapan State Hospital.

Yancey has pushed the idea, with no success, for more than a decade, arguing the city is failing its students without a brand-new high school and that the city is wasting its money renovating existing high schools in old buildings, such as the Quincy School.

This would have been a good

This would have been a good idea 50 years ago. When Boston had neighborhood schools. Now, when every high school is a city wide school, what's the sense? Sorry, Charlie.
