The Post-Standard writes on the fate of the run-down Blodgett School on the West Side. My mom tells me that her aunt (who was only just a few years older than her) went to Blodgett School in the early ’50s or so, when it was even back then deemed a “scary old” school “full of juvenile delinquents.” My grandmother did not want her kids to go to such schools, so a couple years later she packed up the family and followed her other relatives out of the city. And that’s how they became suburbanites.
So, this school’s needs have been ignored for over 50 years. How sad is that?
