What is affected by closing schools? Closing schools affect families in many ways in one case a charter school closed with only 10 weeks of school left. This school was the George Town, Del charter school. This left the families of this school with a decision on what to do and where to send their children. The transition to others schools or learning environments can be even tougher on the children (Sack,Joetta L,Education week 02774232, 2002,vol 21 issue 38). Families have to make decisions on whether to send their children to a public school or to a private school. The consequences of closing schools do not just affect parents and children it also affects the teachers. A teacher will have to find a new job teaching at a new school. He or she may also have to move in order to have that new job. When a school closes it also affects the communities. The community day care centers, recreational group, and busing route around will be affected. and boundaries will have to be redrawn around surviving school(Shepperd, Robert, Maclean’s, 00249262, 11/09/98 vol. 111, issue 45).closing schools can hurt communities because it can force people to move out of smaller communities into larger ones and the smaller communities can lose money.
