Seattle school closures

Think about the future

Instead of closing Seattle schools, it appears Seattle Public Schools may have to open more schools in the near future given all the high-density housing springing up [“Why I’m changing my name to Chrysler,” Jesse D. Hagopian guest commentary, Dec. 22].

And will the current economy lessen the appeal of costly private-school tuitions? The unforeseen overcrowding in Seattle’s northeast and Magnolia schools may be adumbrations worth heeding.

— Patricia Bailey, Seattle
