LCS expanding its boundaries

Published 11:12pm Friday, November 5, 2010

Linden City Schools just may be headed in the right direction. It is a little too early to say for sure one way or the other. But at least new superintendent Dr. Tyrone Smith has some good ideas and a solid vision.

Smith underscores the necessity to equip Linden students to function and succeed in the world outside of Linden. Conversely, he understands doing so will enable them to return to and help the city in which they grew up. To accomplish these goals, LCS is either implementing or considering the implementation of a number of programs including financial literacy courses and Advanced Placement classes. While it remains to be seen how these things are executed, at least Smith and his colleagues are on the right track.
