The Future Of Historic Neighborhood Schools
"Today, fewer than one in eight students walks or bikes to school. The landmark schools that touched the lives of millions and became stalwart symbols of civic pride are fast disappearing. They are giving way to huge, warehouse-like schools in remote areas reachable only by stressful drives through congested traffic. And along with their demise has gone yet another of the ties that once bound people and towns across America."
