Darryl Owens: For West Orange Relief School, County Leaders Finally Get It Right
After a marathon public meeting Tuesday, the Orange County Commission cleared the way for construction of a relief high school in west Orange County. The approval comes after more than a year of wrangling between commissioners and the Orange County School Board over the project, the property, the reaction of some nearby residents, and the needs of students in the nearest public high school that’s currently 800 kids over capacity.
Orlando Sentinel editorial writer and columnist Darryl Owens joined 90.7’s Nicole Creston to share his thoughts on the outcome of Tuesday’s meeting, what it took to get that far, and what happens next.
