Schools consolidation plan draws criticism

Schools consolidation plan is controversial.

A plan to consolidate the schools in Robeson County has been getting mixed reviews. The proposed plan would close 30 schools and renovate five. The plan also includes construction of 13 new schools, plus a new career and technical high school. County residents who oppose the plan say they want new schools but not by crowding students into fewer schools. Parents are worried about long bus rides and the loss of a sense of community when neighborhood schools are closed.
