Six Bronx parochial schools are among 31 facing closure throughout New York City. According to Darlene Rhem, a teacher at St. Augustine School, many people at her school are upset.
The Archdiocese of New York made the move after considering its financial situation recently. Accordingly, the 31 schools designated for closure are considered "at risk." The schools selected for closure span the city, including the Bronx and Westchester.
