Citizens Respond to School's Closure

EDITOR ' S NOTE: The following four letters refer to the Palos Verdes Peninsula school board's decision to close the Margate Intermediate School and reassign its students to the Malaga Cove and Ridgecrest campuses next fall. Trustees adopted revised attendance boundaries last week.

The school board's decision to close the Margate school instead of the Malaga Cove school was a political decision not based on convincing reasons. The only way to undo this is through the political process at the polls next November, when voters will have an opportunity to elect new trustees who can then reopen Margate for the following school year.
