Obama Elementary School Shuts Due To Low Enrollment
Now this is change
For over 100 years, Bangs Avenue Elementary School stood to educate generations of Asbury Park kids. They changed the name to the Barack H. Obama Elementary School, and in one year enrollment drops so low that they have to shut their doors.
ASBURY PARK, N.J. — As President Barack Obama was set to depart on an overseas trip Friday, he faced some sobering news back home — a school bearing his name was to be shuttered because of low enrollment. The Barack H. Obama Elementary School in Asbury Park, N.J., will close its doors this summer as part of a school district consolidation plan resulting from a declining number of students there, the Asbury Park Press reported.
Students at the school, previously known as the Bangs Avenue School until it was renamed for Obama two years ago, will be reassigned to two separate schools when its doors officially close July 1, the report said.
Bruce N. Rodman, the state-appointed official who manages the school district’s finances, said enrollment at the Obama school had seen a 35 percent drop over the past ten years, according to the report.” source – New York Post

The stop was billed as a “storm relief” event, and attendees were asked to bring non-perishable foods and other items for those affected by the storm. Long white tables to one side of the cavernous James S. Trent Arena were piled high with flashlights, batteries, diapers, toothbrushes, mini-deodorants, fleece blankets, cereal, toilet paper and canned goods.
