From the Times-News:
A substantial number of parents at Bruce Drysdale and Hendersonville elementaries said in a survey that they did not want any changes made to the structure of the two schools. Many of those who did want change, however, said they preferred the suggestion that Bruce Drysdale become a magnet school.
Meagan Karvonen, associate professor for Educational Research at Western Carolina University, presented the survey results at a Henderson County School Board workshop Wednesday evening.
“At both schools, there was a fairly sizable segment of the population who wanted things to stay the same,” Karvonen said. “Forty-nine Bruce Drysdale families or 41 percent responded that they wanted things to stay the same and 211 Hendersonville Elementary families or 75 percent responded that they wanted things to stay the same.”
