Phillis Wheatley School
Comments: I am more than disheartened -I am devastated by FEMA's proposal. Charles Colbert's school is a testament to the quality of life all New Orleanians deserve - a school that was light-filled and had a view - higher than most had seen before, of their neighborhood. A place they cared deeply about. The raised school design allowed for outdoor play space under the shade of the steel cantilever and also created an incredibly COST-EFFECTIVE building. Does anyone at FEMA know the price of steel these days? If I have to fly down to New Orleans and stand out in front of a bulldozer I will.
