Pappas Out, Biomedical-Campus In


Bulldozing

Arizona Republic reporter, Yvonne Wingett, finally breaches the real issue over the whole fiasco of Pappas School in the downtown area. One can assume that the Republic finally started reading the comments on its stories and blogsites like Sonoran Alliance.

From the very beginning, its been all about the land that Pappas sits upon and how it could be incorporated into the expanding biomedical campus. There was only one problem standing in the way – Sandra Dowling.

Late last year, Dowling was pressured to resign from the Maricopa County Regional School District which turned the district over to a receivership. The receivership then hired a $700/day consultant and his wife to run the district to the edge of a decision by the board.

The school isn’t even dead and buried and the land is already the hot topic of speculation and development.

Say “Goodbye” to Pappas as the Board of Supervisors prepare to vote on its fate, Monday morning.

Pappas employees can expect pink slips over the next few weeks with the county at least trying to afford them preference and priority in rehiring.


Comments

  1. Follow the $$. ASU vs Pappas. Crow and Gordon and Stapley vs Dowling and homeless children. Downtown revitalization or keeping a school that actually does what it promises.

    Not surprising.
