Not "The Bridge" but Something

John Mason reports in today's Register-Star that the legislation enabling a school to open at 364 Warren Street is expected to reach Governor Andrew Cuomo's desk on Tuesday, one day before the school year begins: "Report: Cuomo to sign alt. ed. school into law." Of course, it's not going to be the program originally planned. The school, in the heart of Hudson's commercial district, will exist to educate twelve special education students who had previously been bused as day students to Berkshire Union Free School.


  1. Wow, an entire school for TWELVE students. The cost per student must be beautiful to behold. Columbia County, Hudson, and NY State have absolutely lost their minds.

    I've known Columbia County since 1984 and this may be the single stupidest thing I've heard of in all that time.

  2. So are the special students from Hudson, then, since the law prevents students being bussed out of their district? It must be some sweet deal for the school and the renter.
