Terence Winn graduated from Booker T. Washington in the eighties. He remembers a time when the school and neighborhood he grown up in were vibrant. "We had a lot of kids in the neighborhood it`s was different then. Driving around this neighborhood now you see a lot of abandoned homes and older residents. The principal at Booker T. Washington Curley White says the changing face of the area may be contributing to the school`s declining enrollment. "It is a fact that over the years our area in which we serve has suffered from families moving out of the area." But there`s another reason why the school is losing students. The old feeder school J-S Clark is now busing students elsewhere. So students will continue to leave the school. That`s why the Caddo parish school board is considering a plan that would help change the future not only for this school but for the entire parish, making sure other schools don`t face the same problem. In the meantime those who live near Booker T. Washington think revitalizing the area would be a good start to finding a solution. The school board is appointing a committee to brainstorm and present ideas to board members about what should be done to improve Booker T. Washington and schools in the entire parish.
