Toronto Star editorial: Time for Toronto to close some schools

The Toronto District School Board serves the largest and most diverse student body in Canada. It faces all kinds of financial challenges and yet still manages to offer innovative education programs.

But the school board is also a pack rat — and that, increasingly, is contributing to its problems. It hangs on to far too many half-empty schools that it can’t afford because they might be useful someday. Keeping these schools open is certainly easier for trustees than battling with parents and local communities over which ones to close, but it wastes scarce education dollars. This can’t go on.
